Safety Program

No Loss of Life

No loss of life to preventable accidents is the general goal for the Safety program in the Army. This principle is realized through various means both on-duty and off-duty.


Off-Duty Oversight

During duty hours leaders provide direct oversight of their Troops. While in Korea, the 2nd Infantry Division/ROK-U.S. Combined Division expects buddies to take care of each other. Once off duty, service members lose the oversight of their military Family. A large number of off-duty programs are designed to counter this by enlisting service members or members of the community. Contact your MWR or BOSS offices for more information.

The Army Safety Program

2nd Infantry Division/ROK-U.S. Combined Division's Safety Program is built around the Army's Safety Program. Its components are neatly organized on the Army Safety Center's web site, into three ‘Corners’: Soldier's, Leader's and Family Corners.

Safety Campaigns

These campaigns are designed to “set the conditions” for safety at the beginning of each season, by forewarning everyone of the identified seasonal safety hazards. They are comprehensive in nature. The campaigns are broken down into risks, broken down into steps for mitigating them.

All risks are based on strong statistical indicators.

The Army Safety Center's seasonal campaigns form the core of the 2nd Infantry Division/ROK-U.S. Combined Division's, while seasonal safety concerns specific to the Division are addressed with Safety Flashes, issued by the Safety Office.

Safety Message

2ID/RUCD Safety Gram, Avoiding Heat Injuries

2ID/RUCD Safety Gram, Use your Antenna Tie Down

Because the most important part of preventing risks is to know what they are, “Point” messages addressed directly to every service member on the peninsula are occasionally sent by the USFK and 2ID/RUCD Commanding Generals to issue warnings of the latent dangers of an event that has occurred or is about to occur.

The messages are addressed to everyone to maximize the awareness of the risk as quickly as possible. At the moment the message is released they can be disseminated immediately through every available channel.

Under the Oak Tree Counseling

Under the Oak Tree Counseling is a concept that is implemented throughout the Army community for its simplicity and effectiveness.

Before periods of high-risk, such as weekends, holidays, passes, and leaves, first-line leaders will meet with their subordinates to discuss their destinations, travel arrangements, and activities. The leaders and the Soldiers will identify the potential safety risks involved and agree upon a plan to mitigate them. Should any subordinate decide to deviate from the plan or knowingly place themselves in risky situations, they become liable to punishment for disobeying orders.

The form used for the counseling is the “Meeting Under The Oak Tree” Contract.
