Injuries, both on-duty and off-duty, can threaten the health and readiness of Sailors and Marines. Every day, injuries put service members on the sidelines, derailing their productivity, and threaten 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.
