Has an environmental-risk assessment been completed and have safety considerations been
Have reconnaissance of the training ranges, sites, or facilities been conducted?
Have leaders been briefed on environmental considerations?
g. Preparation for Training Execution. Formal planning for training culminates with the publication
of the training schedule. Informal planning and coordination continue until the training is performed.
During rehearsals, leaders ensure that all safety and environmental considerations are met.
h. Execution. During operations, leaders ensure that environmental practices and preventive

Briefing environmental considerations in the OPORD.
Including environmental considerations in the safety checks and briefings.

include environmental considerations.
Checking and confirming vehicle load plan, and securing of cargo, especially HM.
(2) Presentation of Training. Through the presentation of training, leaders provide soldiers with
specific training objectives and evaluation methods to be used. Environmental constraints may alter the
conditions under which the task is performed, but should never alter the task standards.
i. Evaluation. The evaluation process is continuous and integral to training management. The AAR
process includes environmental performance and should address all environmental considerations listed in
the training evaluation plan. The evaluation and AAR should cover the following:
Ensuring environmental accountability.
Ensuring HM/HW accountability.
Including environmental issues in AARs.
Developing environmental lessons learned.
j. Unit Assessment. Leaders use evaluations and other feedback to assess soldier, leader, and unit
proficiency. Based on evaluations, commanders adjust priorities and resources as necessary to
synchronize all unit functions.
