with reference (o) as a prerequisite to report or central file
development.

E. PROCEDURES

1. General. DoD Components shall adopt the mishap categories,
classification criteria, and reporting formats and procedures
contained in this Instruction. This does not inhibit DoD Components
from collecting, classifying, and maintaining additional data for
their individual mishap prevention needs.

2. Reporting and Recordkeeping. Minimum reporting and
recordkeeping requirements for DoD mishaps follow:

a. Mishap Investigation Reports

(1) General

(a) All mishap reports are intended to be for
official use only, but are protectable only as specified by DoD
Directive 5400.7 (reference (q)).

(b) The proximate result of any mishap
investigation is a document that provides the essential details of
the mishap and, when appropriate, a summary of corrective actions
taken or anticipated.

(c) DoD Components shall establish procedures to
ensure that all mishaps are investigated by a disinterested third
party whenever possible and that the essential data are recorded.
Inter-Service participation, as observers, is authorized and
encouraged during the conduct of the investigations of mishaps
involving systems common to more than one DoD Component. The extent
of investigative effort should not be tailored to the severity of the
mishap; rather, it should be tailored to identify the causal factors
associated with the mishap.

(d) DoD Components shall develop qualification
criteria for mishap investigators based on the complexity or severity
of the mishaps involved.

(e) For civilian employee mishaps, refer to
reporting requirements in OSHA 2014 (reference (r)).

(f) DoD Components shall provide for the review of
mishap reports by appropriate levels of management, establish a
system to identify problem areas, and ensure that corrective actions,

validated and approved by competent authority, are monitored until
corrective action is complete.

(2) Types of Mishap Investigation Reports. When a
mishap occurs, there may be several reasons for recording data
relating to the mishap. Two reasons are for future mishap prevention
and for legal considerations. These separate objectives require
separate reports. A description of these types of reports and their
relationship to each other are explained in subparagraphs E.2.a(2)(a)
through E.2.a(2)(c) below:

(a) Limited Use Safety Mishap Investigation Reports.
These are close hold, internal communications of the Department of
Defense whose SOLE purpose is prevention of subsequent DoD mishaps.
They are required for all in flight mishaps and are authorized for
use in certain other mishaps as explained in subparagraph E.2.a(2)3,
below. This special category of investigative reports makes certain
that all available information is obtained and analyzed.

1 Since much of this information is available
only from persons directly or indirectly involved in the mishaps, a
means must be provided to establish frank and open exchange of such
information without fear of recrimination or other adverse action.

2 All persons who provide information to mishap
investigators of this special category under a promise of
confidentiality may be ensured that the Department of Defense will
use its best efforts to honor the promise if the record containing
the information becomes the subject of a request under the "Freedom
of Information Act," (DoD Directive 5400.7, reference (q)), and will
not voluntarily disclose this information.

3 In addition to flight mishaps, Limited Use
Safety Mishap Investigation Reports may be used for mishaps involving
other complex weapon systems, equipment, or military-unique items
(such as ships and shipboard systems, guided missiles, laser devices,
or armored vehicles), when the determination of causal factors is
vital to the national defense. The selection of system categories to
be included in this application of Limited Use Safety Mishap
Investigation Reports is delegated to the DoD Components and shall be
prescribed in the DoD Components' implementing documents.

4 The following restrictions are imposed on the
handling of Limited Use Safety Mishap Investigation Reports:

a Reports shall not be used as evidence for
disciplinary action, in determining the misconduct or line-of-duty
status of any personnel, before any evaluation board, or to determine
liability in administrative claims for or against the Government.

b To the extent permissible under the law,
these privileged reports shall not be released in their entirety to
the public or any Federal Agency outside the Department of Defense.
Subject to court order to the contrary, reports may not be used in
any legal proceeding, civil or criminal. The Department of Defense
will use its best efforts to seek available appellate review of a
court order to release a report. Exceptions to the foregoing are
stated in subparagraph E.2.a. (2) (a) 4 c below.

c Notwithstanding the restrictions on the
use and release of these reports in their entirety, purely factual
material, including information such as date, time, location, type
system, weather, maps, and transcripts of air traffic communications,
may be released as required by law or pursuant to court order, or
upon specific authorization of the DoD Component's designated
disclosure authority. To facilitate the separation of this material,
the DoD Components shall structure these reports so that releasable,
nonprivileged material is easily identifiable and separately
retrievable.

d The notation "Limited Use Safety Mishap
Investigation Report" shall be used by all DoD Components for the
identification of these reports.

(b) General Use Safety Mishap Investigation Reports.
These are reports prepared to record data concerning all reportable
DoD mishaps not covered by Limited Use Safety Mishap Investigation
Reports. The PRIMARY purpose of these reports is to prevent future
mishaps. Although their use for other purposes for reasons of
economy is not specifically prohibited, DoD Components shall specify
any reasonable and necessary restrictions on their internal handling
and use to encourage the uninhibited cooperation of essential
witnesses. Witnesses may be advised that their statements may not be
used for internal DoD disciplinary purposes. Promises may not be
given, however, that the information will be treated as exempt from
mandatory disclosure in response to a request under the "Freedom of
Information Act" (DoD Directive 5400.7, reference (q)).

(c) Legal Mishap Investigation Reports. These are
reports of investigations conducted under procedures prescribed by
the DoD Components' Judge Advocates General (JAGs), legal counsel, or
other authority. Legal Mishap Investigation Reports are used to
obtain and preserve all available evidence for use in litigation,
claims, disciplinary action, or adverse administrative actions.
Although nonprivileged information acquired by a safety mishap
investigator shall be made available to the legal investigation, the
latter is conducted independently and apart from other types of
mishap investigations. Personnel assigned to conduct safety
investigations under subparagraphs E.2.a.(2)(a) and E.2.a.(2)(b),
above, shall not conduct, review, evaluate, or maintain on file the
legal investigation. DoD Components shall prepare this type of
investigation report, in addition to any authorized Safety Mishap
Investigation Report, whenever a mishap involves one or more of the
following:

1 All Class A mishaps in which a limited sse
safety mishap investigation will be conducted.

2 All mishaps involving one or more fatalities.

3 Anticipated litigation for or against the
Government or a Government contractor.

4 Anticipated disciplinary or adverse
administrative action against any individual.

5 Probable high public interest.

b. Log of Federal Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. A
log (automated or manual) shall be maintained for civilian personnel
at each DoD installation or distinctly separate DoD activity using
the format and instructions contained in the OSHA 2014 (reference
(r)). A log similar to that found in (reference (r)) shall be
maintained for military personnel with and/or off-duty mishaps
recorded separately. On-duty injuries and occupational illnesses
shall be entered on the log within 6 work days of notification of
such occurrences. Log retention and access are outlined in reference
(r).

c. Annual Report For Occupational Safety and Health (OSH).
DoD Components shall prepare and forward the annual summary
describing the previous year's OSH program to the ASD(FM&P) no later
than January 1 of each year (details and format are in Appendix F of
reference (r)).

d. Instructions for Semiannual Safety and Occupational
Health Program Review. Semiannually, the Military Departments and
selected Defense Agencies shall present individual briefings on their
safety and occupational health programs to the ASD(FM&P) (enclosure
6).

e. Special Reporting of Serious Mishaps. The requirements
and instructions for these reports of serious mishaps are in
enclosure 3.

f. Special Reporting of Explosive and Chemical Agent Mishaps
to the Department of Defense Explosives Safety Board (DDESB). The
requirements and instructions for these reports are in enclosure 4.

3. Non-Reportable Mishaps. The following mishaps need not be
reported under this Instruction:

a. Mishaps involving nuclear weapons, reactors, or
radioactive materials involved in these systems. These are
reportable in accordance with DoD Instruction 0-7730.12 (reference
(k)). However, other radiation mishaps are reportable.

b. Damage or injury by direct action of an enemy or hostile
force.
c. Intentional, controlled jettison or release, during
flight, of canopies, cargo, doors, drag chutes, hatches, life rafts,
auxiliary fuel tanks, missiles, drones, rockets, nonnuclear
munitions, and externally carried equipment not essential to flight,
when there is no injury, no reportable damage to the aircraft or
other property, and, in the case of missiles, drones or non-nuclear
munitions, when the reason for jettison is not malfunction.

d. Malfunction or failure of component parts due to normal
wear and tear and is the only damage, and the sole action is to
replace or repair that component part. When the malfunction or
failure of a component part results in reportable damage to another
component part, this exception does not apply; such as, the failure
of a jet engine turbine which results in damage to the aircraft
fuselage; or a blown aircraft tire which results in damage to the
wheel well or aircraft structure.

e. Injuries associated with nonoccupational diseases, when
the disease itself, not the injury, is the proximate cause of the
lost time; such as, a minor laceration suffered by a hemophiliac that
results in time away from work. However, complications of the injury
(such as the infection of a cut aggravated by a work-related
activity) that result in lost time are reportable.

f. Attempted or consummated suicide or homicide, or
intentionally self-inflicted injuries.

g. Injuries resulting from altercations, attack, or assault,
unless incurred in the performance of official duties when an attack
or assault would not be a felony; such as, a nurse assaulted by a
patient in a mental institution.

h. Injuries sustained before entry into the military service,
or civilian employment, unless specifically aggravated by current
tenure of service.

i. Hospitalization for treatment where the patient is
retained beyond the day of admission solely for administrative
reasons. (See definition 26., enclosure 2.)

j. Hospitalization for observation or administrative reasons
not related to the immediate injury or occupational illness. (See
definition 26., enclosure 2.)

k. Injuries that result from:

(1) Pre-existing musculoskeletal disorders.

(2) Minimum stress and strain (simple, natural,
nonviolent body positions or actions as in dressing, sleeping,
coughing, or sneezing). These are injuries unrelated to
accident-producing agents or environments normally associated with
active participation in daily work or recreation.

l. Injuries or fatalities to persons in the act of escaping
from or eluding military or civilian custody or arrest.

m. Death due to natural causes that are unrelated to the work
environment.

n. Intentional or expected damage to DoD equipment or
property incurred during authorized testing or combat training,
including missile and ordnance firing.

o. Foreign object damage (FOD) to aircraft, air-breathing
missiles, or drone engines discovered during scheduled engine
disassembly.

p. Property damage as a result of vandalism, riots, civil
disorders, sabotage, terrorist activities, or felony acts, such as
arson.

4. Fire Incident Investigation and Reporting. DoD installations
with organized fire departments shall use the reporting format and
instructions prescribed in DoD 6055.7-M (reference (j)). At
locations where non-DoD fire departments perform fire fighting
services, a copy of that fire department's fire report shall be
submitted to the central DoD file.

5. Contractor Mishaps Involving DoD Property and DoD Personnel
Injuries. Each Head of a DoD Component, or designee, shall:

a. Develop procedures to ensure that mishaps that occur as a
result of a Government contractor's operations in which there is
reportable damage are investigated and reported. This includes
nondelivered equipment for which the Government has assumed
responsibility.

b. For mishaps, exclusive of explosives, determine if such
investigations are to be made by the contractor or DoD personnel. In
either case, a record of the mishap shall be maintained by the DoD
Component.

c. For explosive mishaps in Government-owned,
contractor-operated (GOCO) facilities, the contracting DoD Component,
unless otherwise directed by the ASD(FM&P), shall conduct the
investigation and prepare a report on behalf of the Department of
Defense. Assistance may be requested from the DDESB, the DLA, and
the contractor.

6. Cost Data

a. The standardized cost data in the tables in enclosure 5
shall be used to compute the cost of injuries and occupational
illness of DoD personnel reported in this Instruction. In those
cases when the actual time lost is not known at the time a report is
submitted, the best official estimate of lost time shall be used in
computing the cost of the injury or occupational illness.

b. The direct cost of damage to DoD property shall be
computed using the actual cost of repair or replacement, including
work hours to repair, or the best official estimate available.

c. A standard rate of $16 per work hour (determined by the
Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Logistics)
(ODASD(L))) shall be used for labor cost computations.

d. In the case of destroyed aircraft, fly-away costs plus
modification costs shall be used.

e. When an aircraft engine is damaged to the extent that it
must be returned to a repair facility, the cost of such damage shall
be reported as the established repair cost.

f. The cost of intentionally jettisoned items, as listed in
paragraph E.3.c., above, shall not be included in the cost of the
mishap.

g. When other aircraft components are damaged to the extent
that they must be returned to a repair facility, the reported cost
for repair shall be computed at IS percent of the initial unit cost.

h. In the event of a mishap that involves two or more DoD
Components, each DoD Component shall report its own losses.

7. Duplicate Reporting. To avoid duplicate reporting of DoD
Component personnel regularly assigned to another DoD Component,
death, injuries, and occupational illnesses shall be reported by the
organization of assignment, rather than the parent DoD Component.

8. Access to Records. The Heads of DoD Components, or designees,
shall:

a. Develop procedures to release or withhold information in
mishap investigation reports in accordance with DoD Directive 5400.7
and DoD 5400.11-R (references (q) and (s)).

b. Ensure the availability to DoD personnel of other records
maintained under this Instruction, and with the permission of DoD
personnel involved, to representatives of DoD civilian employees.
This procedure shall be in accordance with other pertinent statutes,
regulations, instructions, and any applicable collective bargaining
agreements.

c. Ensure that records required by this Instruction are
retained for at least 5 years following the end of the fiscal year to
which they relate.

9. Cross-feed of Mishap Data

a. The Secretaries of the Military Departments, or designees,
shall:

(1) Provide for the compatible cross-feed of mishap data
that involves like equipment or similar operations. This cross-feed
shall include appropriate information relative to equipment safety
modifications.

(2) Establish procedures to review safety modifications
directed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for possible
application to similar DoD aircraft.

b. The Heads of DoD Components, or designees, shall:

(1) Where there are significant industrial operations,
participate in the Failure Experience Data Bank of the
Government-Industry Data Exchange Program (GIDEP) (reference (t)).
Each SAFE-ALERT issued by GIDEP as a result of part, component,
process, or material failure shall be reviewed and appropriate action
taken to disseminate the information contained therein.

(2) Establish procedures to ensure the timely
distribution of the lessons learned from significant mishaps to all
affected organizations within the Department of Defense.

F. INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS

The reporting and recordkeeping requirements of this Instruction
have been assigned the following Inter-Agency and Internal Report
Control Symbols (RCSs):

1. Inter-Agency RCS 1146-DOL-XX has been assigned to paragraphs
E.2.b., and c., above.

2. RCS DD-FM&P(AR) 1020 has been assigned to paragraph E.2.f.,
above.

3. The fire incident reporting requirements in subsection E.4.,
above, including the establishment of the Navy's central DoD report
file, are assigned RCS DD-FM&P(AR) 1765.

G. EFFECTIVE DATE AND IMPLEMENTATION

DEFINITIONS

1. Aircraft Flight or Flight-Related Mishap. A mishap involving DoD
aircraft when intent to fly exists.

a. Flight Mishaps. Those mishaps in which there is reportable
damage to the aircraft itself. (NOTE: Explosives, chemical agent,
or missile events that cause damage to a DoD aircraft with intent to
fly are categorized as flight mishaps to avoid dual reporting.
However, enclosure 4 applies to flight mishaps involving explosives
or chemical agents.)

b. Flight-Related Mishaps. Those aircraft mishaps where there
is intent for flight and no reportable damage to the aircraft itself,
but the mishap involves fatality, injury to air crew, ground crew or
passengers, or other property damage. These mishaps are not to be
used in the calculation of flight mishap rates.

2. Aircraft Ground Mishaps. Ground and maritime mishaps that
involve damage or injury and/or fatality sustained from maintenance,
handling, or servicing of aircraft without intent for flight. For
DoD reporting purposes, however, these mishaps shall be included in
either aircraft ground or maritime categories, as applicable.

3. Combat Training Mishap. Ground mishap that involves peacetime
military operations. The term includes any one, or a combination of
the following:

a. Combat Vehicle, Equipment Damage. Damage to combat
equipment or vehicles such as tanks, self-propelled gun mounts,
armored carriers, amphibious vehicles ashore, and field communication
equipment in the course of operational training.

b. Combat Training Injuries. Personal injuries resulting from
unique military training activities such as maneuvers, field
training, parachuting, survival training, or explosive ordnance
demolitions.

4. DoD Aircraft

a. All manned weight-carrying devices supported in flight by
buoyancy or dynamic action and are owned or leased by DoD Components
(including Reserve forces and National Guard) that are:

(1) Operated and exclusively controlled or directed by a DoD
Component.

(2) Furnished by the Government or on bailment to a non-DoD
organization for modification, maintenance, repair, test, contract
training, or experimental project for a DoD Component, when the
Government has assumed ground and flight risk.

(3) Under test by a DoD Component. (This includes aircraft
furnished by a contractor or another Government Agency when operated
by a DoD aircrew in official status and a DD Form 250, "Material
Inspection and Receiving Report," has been executed to certify that
the Department of Defense has accepted the aircraft.)

b. Does not include aircraft that are:

(1) Leased, on bailment, or loaned (except as specified in
definition 4.a.(2), above) to contractors, commercial airlines, other
Government Agencies, or foreign governments, when the lessee has
assumed risk of loss. (See DoD Instruction 7230.8, reference (u).)

(2) Civil aircraft owned by civil operators and
accomplishing contract air missions for the DoD Components.

(3) Factory-new production aircraft until successful
completion of the post-production acceptance flight. Mishaps that
involve such aircraft are reported as contractor mishaps.

(4) Flying club aircraft or privately owned aircraft
hangared on DoD installations.

5. DoD Mishap. An unplanned event, or series of events, that
results in damage to DoD property; occupational illness to DoD
military or civilian personnel; injury to DoD military personnel on-
or off-duty; injury to on-duty civilian personnel; damage to public
and private property or injury and illness to non-DoD personnel
caused by DoD operations.

6. DoD Personnel

a. Civilian On-Duty. DoD Civil Service employees (including
National Guard and Reserve technicians, unless in military duty
status); nonappropriated fund employees (excluding part-time
military); Corps of Engineers Civil Works employees; Youth or Student
Assistance Program employees; foreign nationals employed by DoD
Components; and Army-Air Force Exchange Service employees.

b. Military. All U.S. military personnel on active duty; U.S.
Military Reserve or National Guard personnel on active duty or in
drill status; Service Academy cadets; Reserve Officer Training Corps
(ROTC) cadets when engaged in directed training activities; foreign
national military personnel assigned to DoD Components.

7. Duty Status Determination. These definitions are for mishap
reporting purposes only and have no relation to compensability or
line-of-duty determination. NOTE: Judgment may be required in some
cases that do not fit the definition set forth in definition 7.a.
through 7.b. below. Paragraph A.2.7 of ANSI Standard Z16.4-1977
(reference (v)) may be used to assist in this determination. END
NOTE:

a. On-Duty. When DoD personnel are:

(1) Physically present at any location (area under the
control of a DoD Component) where they are to perform their
officially assigned work. (This includes those activities incident
to normal work activities that occur on DoD installations, such as
lunch, coffee, or rest breaks, and all activities aboard vessels.)

(2) Being transported by DoD or commercial conveyance for
the purpose of performing officially assigned work. (This includes
reimbursable travel in private motor vehicles for performing
temporary duty, but not routine travel to and from work.)

(3) Participating in compulsory physical training activities
(including compulsory sports).

b. Off-Duty. When DoD personnel:

(1) Are not in an on-duty status, whether on or off DoD
installations ashore.

(2) Have departed official duty station, temporary duty
station, or ship at termination of normal work schedule.

(3) Are on leave and/or liberty.

driving to and from work.

(5) Are participating in voluntary base and/or installation
team sports.

(6) Are on permissive (no cost to Government other than
pay) temporary duty.

(7) Are on lunch or other rest break engaged in activities
unrelated to eating or resting.

8. Explosives and Chemical Agents

a. Explosives. All items of ammunition; propellants, liquid and
solid; high and low yield explosives; pyrotechnics; and substances
associated with the foregoing that present real or potential hazards
to life or property. The term includes any device or assembly of
devices that contains an explosive material. Examples are bombs,
guided or unguided; water and land mines; depth charges; nonnuclear
warheads; explosive-loaded projectiles; explosive components of
aircrew escape systems; missile propellants; unguided missiles;
pyrotechnic, illuminating, and signaling devices; and
cartridge-actuated tools, such as stud drivers.

b. Chemical Agent. A chemical compound intended for use in
military operations to kill, seriously injure, or incapacitate
persons through its chemical properties. Excluded are riot control
agents, chemical herbicides, smoke, and flame. Pesticides,
insecticides, and industrial chemicals, unless selected by DoD
Components for chemical warfare purposes, are also excluded.

9. Explosives and Chemical Agent Mishaps

a. Explosive Mishap. An unplanned explosion or functioning of
explosive material or devices (except during combat). This includes
inadvertent actuation, jettisoning, and releasing or launching
explosive devices. It also includes mishaps that result from
off-range impacts of ordnance. For mishap reporting purposes, dummy
(inert) ordnance shall be considered as an explosive device any time
it is used in training or test situations to simulate an actual item.

b. Chemical Agent Mishap. Any unintentional or uncontrolled
release of a chemical agent when:

(1) Reportable damage occurs to property from contamination,
or costs are incurred for decontamination.

(2) Individuals exhibit physiological symptoms of agent
exposure.

(3) The agent quantity released to the atmosphere is such
that a serious potential for exposure is created by exceeding the
applicable maximum allowable concentration-time levels for exposure
of unprotected workers or the general population.

10. Fire. Any fire-mishap that requires a fire department response
on any DoD installation or property. Property damage, injuries, or
occupational illnesses that are the result of a fire shall be
additionally reported, as required by DoD 6055.7-M (reference (j)).

11. First Aid. Any one-time treatment and any followup visit for the
purpose of observation of minor scratches, cuts, burns, and
splinters, which do not ordinarily require medical care. Such
one-time treatment and followup visit for observation is considered
first aid, even though provided by a physician or registered
professional personnel.

NOTE: ANSI Standard Z16.4-1977 (reference (v)) may be used to assist
in the determination of first aid cases.

12. Government Motor Vehicle (GMV). A motor vehicle that is owned,
leased, or rented by a DoD Component (not individuals); primarily
designed for over-the-road operations; and whose general purpose is
the transportation of cargo or personnel. Examples of GMVs are
passenger cars, station wagons, ambulances, buses, motorcycles,
trucks, and tractor-trailers. The following are not considered GMVs
under this Instruction:

a. Motor vehicle equipment designed primarily for
off-the-highway operation such as tracked or half-tracked vehicles,
forklifts, road graders, agricultural-type wheeled tractors, and
aircraft tugs. (These vehicles are categorized as special purpose or
combat vehicles according to their use.)

b. Vehicles on memorandum receipt to, and operated by, non-DoD
persons or agencies and activities such as the U.S. Postal Service or
the American Red Cross.

13. Government Motor Vehicle (GMV) Mishap. A mishap involving the
operation of an over-the-road DoD motor vehicle, being operated as
such at the time of the mishap.

a. These mishaps include collisions with other vehicles,
objects, or pedestrians; personal injury or property damage due to
cargo shifting in a moving vehicle; personal injury in moving
vehicles or by falling from moving vehicles; towing or pushing
mishaps; and other injury and property damage as described under the
term "mishap."

b. The following mishaps, although reportable and accountable,
are not considered as motor vehicle mishaps. They are accountable
under other ground categories.

(1) Personal injuries that occur while loading or unloading,
mounting or dismounting a motor vehicle that is not moving.

(2) Cargo directly damaged by weather.

(3) Damage to a properly parked DoD vehicle unless it is
damaged by another DoD vehicle.

(4) Damage to a DoD motor vehicle resulting solely from
natural phenomena.

(5) Damage to a DoD motor vehicle being handled as a
commodity and not being operated under its own power.

(6) Damage to a DoD motor vehicle caused by objects thrown
or propelled into it.

(7) Damage to a DoD motor vehicle by fire when no DoD motor
vehicle accident occurred.

14. Ground Mishap. Any mishap on the ground exclusive of aviation
(flight and/or flight-related), fire (ashore), private motor vehicle
(PMV), GMV, missiles, nuclear, and explosive mishaps. For Navy, ship
and/or submarine and/or diving mishaps are excluded. For Army,
combat vehicle and marine environment mishaps are excluded.

15. Guided Missile. All missiles propelled through air or water that
are unmanned, guided by internal or external systems, and
self-propelled. The term includes individual major missile
components such as stages, guidance and control sections, payloads
other than nuclear reentry vehicles; system equipment required to
place the missile in an operational status while at the launch or
launch control facility or on the launching aircraft; and system
equipment required to launch and control the missile. Examples are
intercontinental ballistic missiles; surface-to-air, air-to-air, and
air-to-surface guided missiles; torpedoes; and remotely piloted
vehicles. The term includes all missiles that are:

a. Owned in whole or in part by a DoD Component.

b. Operationally controlled by a DoD Component.

c. On bailment or loan to a non-DoD Agency for modification,
testing, or as an experimental project for a DoD Component.

d. Under test by a DoD Component.

16. Guided Missile Mishap. A mishap involving guided missiles or
missile support equipment except when in transportation or storage.
(NOTE: Enclosure 4 applies for missile mishaps involving the
explosive components of a guided missile.)

17. Illness and/or Disease. A nontraumatic physiological harm or
loss of capacity produced by systemic infection; continued or
repeated stress or strain; exposure to toxins, poisons, fumes, etc.;
or other continued and repeated exposures to conditions of the work
environment over a long period of time. For practical purposes, an
occupational illness and/or disease is any reported condition that
does not meet the definition of injury.
18. Injury. A traumatic wound or other condition of the body caused
by external force, including stress or strain. The injury is
identifiable as to time and place of occurrence and member or
function of the body affected, and is caused by a specific event or
incident or series of events or incidents within a single day or work
shift.

19. Intent for Flight. Intent for flight exists from takeoff brake
release or power application until landing is completed. (For
wheeled aircraft, landing is completed when the aircraft has safely
cleared the landing area.)

20. Lost Time Case. A nonfatal traumatic injury that causes any loss
of time from work beyond the day or shift on which it occurred or a
nonfatal nontraumatic illness that causes loss of time from work or
disability at any time.

21. Maritime Mishap. Except as noted in definition 21.a. and 21.b.,
below, any DoD mishap that occurs to, or on board, or as the result
of the operation of, a DoD combat vessel or service craft, or that
involves DoD diving or swimmer operations.

a. The term includes mishaps occurring while loading and/or
off-loading or receiving services at dockside, and mishaps occurring
up to the high water mark during amphibious or inshore warfare
training operations. It applies also to all injuries to DoD
personnel occurring on board, whether or not job-related.

b. The term does not include mishaps that are reportable under
other major categories prescribed in this Instruction, such as
flight, missile, explosive and/or chemical agent, nor to injuries to
assigned personnel that occur away from the vessel, whether or not
job-related. Mishaps occurring on board that result from shipyard,
repair facility, or private contractor operations are not maritime
mishaps. Such mishaps are categorized as ground (other) or
contractor mishaps if reportable injury or damage to DoD personnel or
property occurs.

22. Miscellaneous DoD Mishap. Mishaps that are not the result of a
DoD operation, but which involve DoD injuries and occupational
illnesses and damage to DoD property.

a. Private Motor Vehicle (PMW) Mishap. A traffic mishap
regardless of the identity of the operator, that does not involve a
GMW, but results in a fatality or lost time case injury (involving
days away from work) to military personnel on or off duty or to
on-duty civilian personnel, or reportable damage to DoD property.

b. Other Military Mishap. A mishap ashore, other than PMV,
that results in a fatality or a lost time case to DoD military
personnel not involved in a DoD operation whether or not on a DoD
installation, or in damage to DoD property not resulting from DoD or
DoD contractor operations.

c. Contractor Mishap. A mishap resulting from contractor
operations that results in injury and/or occupational illness to DoD
personnel or damage to DoD property.
NOTE: Injury or occupational illness or damage to contractor
personnel or equipment is not included, but is reported instead
through the private sector OSHA system.

23. Mishap Severity Classification. DoD mishaps are classified
according to the severity of resulting injury, occupational illness,
or property damage. Property damage severity is generally expressed
in terms of cost and is calculated as the sum of the costs associated
with DoD property and non-DoD property that is damaged in a DoD
mishap. Additionally, if injury or occupational illness results, an
event is reportable even if the associated costs are less than the
minimum dollar criteria. Classify DoD mishaps, as follows:

a. Class A Mishap. The resulting total cost of reportable
damage is $1,000,000 or more; a DoD aircraft, missile, or spacecraft
is destroyed; or an injury and/or occupational illness results in a
fatality or permanent total disability.

b. Class B Mishap. The resulting total cost of reportable
property damage is $200,000 or more, but less than $1,000,000; an
injury and/or occupational illness results in permanent partial
disability; or when five or more personnel are inpatient
hospitalized.

c. Class C Mishap. The resulting total cost of property damage
is $10,000 or more, but less than $200,000; a nonfatal injury that
causes any loss of time from work beyond the day or shift on which it
occurred; or a nonfatal illness or disability that causes loss of
time from work or disability at any time (lost time case). Reporting
this class of mishap is optional.

d. Class D Mishap. The resulting total cost of property damage
is less than $10,000, or a nonfatal injury that does not meet the
criteria of a Class C mishap (no lost time case). Reporting this
class of mishap is optional.

e. Foreign Object Damage (FOD) Incident. Reportable incidents
confined to turbine engine damage as a result of internal or external
turbine engine FOD. FOD incidents are to be reported as a separate
category.

24. No Lost Time Case. A nonfatal injury or illness and/or disease
that does not meet the definition of a lost time case. (Usually
created by a compensation claim for medical expense.)

25. Non-DoD Personnel. Off-duty DoD civilian personnel, persons
employed by other Federal Agencies, and other civilians and foreign
nationals not employed by the Department of Defense.

26. Observation and/or Diagnostic Procedure. Hospitalization or
restriction from assigned work activities for observation or
diagnosis is not a lost time case or a no lost time case, provided no
treatment or medication is given for the suspected injury or
occupational illness, and competent medical authority determines the
individual could have returned to his or her normal job without
impairment or disability. This classification applies also where an
individual is temporarily restricted from regularly assigned duties
to preclude exceeding time-weighted exposure limits.

27. OSHA Reporting Procedures For Civilian Fatalities. All civilian
fatalities or catastrophic (inpatient hospitalization of five or more
personnel) mishaps shall be reported by telephone or by message to
the ASD(FM&P), or designee (Director of Safety and Occupational
Health Policy) within 48 hours (enclosure 3). The ASD(FM&P), or
designee, assumes responsibility to notify OSHA's Office of Federal
Agency Programs with a summary report of fatal or catastrophic
accident investigations in accordance with 29 CFR 1960 (reference
(h)). The summary report format shall be made in accordance with the
attachment to this enclosure and shall be submitted to the ASD(FM&P),
or designee, within 120 days of the mishap.

28. Property Damage. Damage to facilities, equipment, property, or
material where the total cost to repair or replace is at least
$2,000.

29. Space Mishap. Mishaps are categorized as space mishaps based on
the phase of operation at the time of occurrence. The term includes
mishaps that occur during all space operations when "intent for
spaceflight" exists.

a. Space Vehicle. A recoverable or nonrecoverable vehicle
designed to orbit the earth or travel beyond the earth's atmosphere.
The term includes satellites, orbiters, and payloads.

b. Space Booster. A launch vehicle designed to propel or carry
a space vehicle from the earth's surface or from orbit to a desired
point in space. The term includes engines, rocket motors, upper
stages, fuel tanks, and guidance and control sections.

c. Space System. A system consisting of a space vehicle and a
space booster.

d. Space Support System. A system consisting of equipment and
facilities required to process the space system. This term includes
launch pad and associated equipment, and system equipment required to
check out, launch, command, control, and recover elements of the
space system.

e. DoD space systems and space support systems include systems
that are:

(1) Owned in whole or in part or leased by a DoD Component.

(2) Operated and controlled or directed by a DoD Component.

(3) Furnished by the Department of Defense or leased to a
non-DoD organization when the Department of Defense has retained the
risk of loss.

(4) Systems for which a DoD Component has development
and/or procurement responsibility.

(5) Under test by a DoD Component.

f. Intent for Spaceflight. This condition is necessary for
mishap to be reported as a space mishap. It exists when the final
launch sequence is initiated for the express purpose of launching a
space vehicle into space. Intent for spaceflight continues until all
normal expected spaceflight operations have ended (i.e., satellite is
intentionally no longer used, space shuttle comes to a stop on
completion on landing rollout, etc.).

g. Spaceflight Mishap. Those mishaps in which there is
substantial damage to the space system itself when intent for
spaceflight exists.

h. Spaceflight-Related Mishap. Those mishaps in which there
is no damage to the spacecraft itself, but the mishap involves injury
to ground crew or other property damage, when intent for spaceflight
exists.
