Some Sailors and Marines participate in off-duty activities that may put them at risk for accidents that could have serious consequences. Mishaps, primarily related to private motor vehicle and off-duty/shore recreational activities can causetragic loss of life as well asinjuries, putting service members on the sidelines, derailing their productivity and threatening their readiness for duty.

In this toolbox we provide Sailors, Marines, beneficiaries, DoD civilians, health promotion coordinators, and health information disseminators the resources to exercise safety precautions so they can stay safe at work and fully enjoy recreational activities in their free time.
