For those of you with cadets, what topics do you generally cover in your safety briefings?
So far (at my unit) I've seen:
Hot & Cold weather injuries
Seat belt and driving
Hiking

Does anyone use the National Safety Bulletin that comes out monthly for briefings?

I try to make the Safety briefings apply as much as possible to things the cadets do, both in and out of CAP.  For example, earlier this year we were working on Flight Line Marshalling for cadets; therefore, the Safety Briefing that month focused on flight line safety.

Does anyone use the National Safety Bulletin that comes out monthly for briefings?

The Sentinel?  Occassionally.  If anything, it's good for ideas on what to cover in safety briefings or an easy thing to use if you don't have anything prepared in time for your briefing.  Our unit does post it up on our Safety Board for pilots, and cadets may take a gander at that too, perhaps.

Arajca.........I have a very detailed (144+ pages) Safety Officer's Guide that was compiled by someone in the IAWG. It covers 100+ topics, and even gives an outline for each topic. If you would like a copy of it (requires Adobe reader), email or PM me. I found it a VERY useful resource for my stint as SO.

I have used the IA Wing guide beofre as well.... excellent resource. The NHQ's Safety website has other presentations you can download and share. I have also put together/ modified a bunch of presentations I am willing to share with anyone who needs them... feel free to let me know if you want them!

Merry Christmas!

I just went over to the IAWG website with their Safety Officers Guide.  In starting a new squadron, one of the immediate things that I would like to address is applicable safety briefings that have good interactive content.  This seems like a great start-up tool for it. 

Just wanted to bring this thread up to the forefront so people continue to look at safety!

Hmm...I hadn't looked at their site, MIWG seems to still by playing "catch-up" as far as disseminating that kind of information goes.  My unit is still developing a squadron website and I plan on posting the information for the Safety Topic of the Month on it.

During the last few months, I have covered:

Violence in the Work Place (and included school violence since school is the Cadets' "work place")

Poison Prevention (tons of good stuff on the the Poison Control Center's website)

Sports Safety (this was actually requested by the Cadets)

Prior to that was a lot on Winter safety.

I personally try to avoid using the Safety Bulletins I prefer to give my own briefings taking ideas out of the Safety Officers Handbook.

Another question:

How do you ensure 100% participation in safety briefings? Either at the briefing itself or, for those who missed it, afterward in a verifiable manner.

Maybe make the Safety briefing an interactive activity rather than just sitting there, and listening to someone talk for an hour.

Well the Safety Briefing should be that.  Brief.  What I do is once a quarter have a safety class where I do my best to have it ineractive.  What I've done is do three briefings that tie together and then in the class I tie them together in the first few minutes and have them unlearn what they have learned.

Some wings have a safety briefing online.  Those who couldn't make it to the safety briefing, read the safety brief/notes online and electronically sign they've read it.  If you're not current on safety briefings, you don't fly...

We've (my unit) tag teamed some safety briefings with DDR and Health Services. We've covered things like DDR -smoking, drunking, drug use (all unsafe) and Health Services - flu shots, blood borne illness, good diet and exercise, etc.....units with HSO and DDR staffs should include them in the safety class planning.
