Injury and Violence Free Living

Injuries create more of an ongoing threat to the health and readiness of our U.S. Armed Forces than any other medical condition. Every day, injuries put service members on the sidelines, derailing their productivity and threatening their fitness for duty. Exposure to violence does, too — whether it’s physical or psychological trauma. The thing is: many of the injuries and distress triggers are preventable. That’s where we come in. The HPW department offers you practical tools, educational resources and evidence-based prevention strategies that help keep Sailors performing at their peak—on and off the job.
