composite risk management

Definition/Scope: (FM 5-19) Composite risk management (CRM) is the Army's primary decisionmaking process for identifying hazards and controlling risks across the full spectrum of Army missions, functions, operations, and activities. CRM is a decisionmaking process used to mitigate risks associated with all hazards that have the potential to injure or kill personnel, damage or destroy equipment, or otherwise impact mission effectiveness. In the past, the Army separated risk into two categories, tactical risk and accident risk. While these two areas of concern remain, the primary premise of CRM is that it does not matter where or how the loss occurs, the result is the same— decreased combat power or mission effectiveness. CRM is a five-step process: 1 – Identify hazards, 2 – Assess hazards to determine risk, Step 3 – Develop controls and make risk decisions, 4 – Implement controls, 5 – Supervise and evaluate.
