Operational Risk Management Training Online

Operational Risk Management Training Online

By Dean Persons, Naval Education Training Command/Navy Region Gulf Public Affairs

Pensacola, Florida -- (NNS) October 17, 2003 -- Uncertainty and risk are inherent in the nature of everyday military duty. To help Sailors deal with these uncertainties and risks, the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) has put together an informational package on Operation Risk Management (ORM) training on the Navy Knowledge Online Web site.

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld stated in a memorandum sent to all the Services May 19, 2003, that "world-class organizations do not tolerate preventable accidents. Our accident rates have increased recently, and we need to turn this situation around."

Rumsfeld also challenged Department of Defense personnel to reduce the number of mishaps and accident rates by at least 50 percent in the next two years.

"The success of any Naval operation is based upon a willingness to balance risk with opportunity in taking bold, decisive action necessary to triumph in war," said Capt. Dennis M. Faherty, the previous director of the Navy’s Operational Risk Management Program. "At the same time, commanders have a fundamental responsibility to safeguard personnel and material resources, and to accept the level of controlled risk necessary to accomplish the assigned mission."

"ORM training is important to the Navy because it gives Sailors a common language to speak when dealing with managing the risk that’s a part of their jobs," said Chris Chaffin, NETC Safety Manager. "It’s a language that applies in any situation, on any ship, or shore location in every situation. This training gives Sailors the potential to reduce or even eliminate accidents throughout the Navy."

According to Chaffin, the ORM online training package was molded from the Navy’s aviation community ORM training program.

"The aviation community was the leader with ORM and developed their own online training package. We took that basic package and put it on Navy Knowledge Online. We then took a model of that and built a second package for shore and afloat Sailors to use."

The Web-based e-learning product includes four courses tailored to seniority and position to learn the concepts, procedures, doctrines, and practices of ORM. The site contains presentations that will help military and civilians alike learn ORM.

"The training package starts out with the ORM fundamentals course," said Chaffin. "It provides the introduction to the ORM process, techniques and basic tools and applies to personnel at any level. Then there is the essentials for leaders course. It gives a brief review of ORM fundamentals and provides intermediate level training on applying ORM. It also teaches how to do risk assessments online using the Total Risk Assessment Computer System or TRACS."

"The application and integration course will provide the user with advanced ORM concepts and applications and gives Sailors the ability to use ORM ‘on the fly,’ in situations where they don’t have a lot of time to do the actual written assessment or the more protractive operational assessment," explained Chaffin. "The last course is the executive overview course. This course is intended for senior Navy leaders, generally for commanding officers and above. It gives them an understanding of the program, how it works, and how their people can and should apply it."

"The Navy is at a point where they are going to take ORM to the next level," said Chaffin. "Our training will help make that process work."

After learning the information, the student is tested on their new knowledge base, and, if successful, the student may print a certificate of completion that shows they have passed the Navy's online ORM training class...all without leaving their command.

The Web site contains more information pertaining to the four principals of ORM, and students can learn about implementing ORM and applying ORM to off duty situations.
