The Military Branch covers safety topics relevant to active duty, reserve and National Guard members and their civil service counterparts. Operational, fleet and off-duty safety are covered since the branches of the military share common risks and exposures not generally seen outside the military services.

Lessons Learned in Safety
While some lessons might not be direct, I believe they contain principles worth reminding other disciplines and leaders throughout safety programs, command leadership, accident investigators and perhaps even organizations like law enforcement and emergency responders.
