What is SAFENET?
 

SAFENET is a program with a form designed for reporting and correcting unsafe situations and for sharing critical safety information related to fire operations (wildland and prescribed).

SAFENET has three primary purposes:

  1. To provide immediate reporting and correction of unsafe situations in fire operations.
  2. To provide a vehicle for sharing important safety information throughout the fire community.
  3. To provide long-term data to assist in identifying trends.

SAFENET Submissions:

  1. Anyone may initiate a SAFENET for the purpose of reporting an unsafe condition, unsafe procedure, or near miss. In order for the SAFENET originator to receive notification of corrective actions taken, the originators name should be included on the form. However, it is important to know that SAFENET may be submitted anonymously in accordance with 29 CFR 1960.
  2. In order to ensure the most immediate corrective action. SAFENET should be submitted to your supervisor. However, the originator has the right to submit SAFENET to any level of the organization.
