Military Exercises and the Duty of Care: Further Follow-Up

Non-inquiry session

In 2016 we published "Beyond Endurance? Military exercises and the duty of care". This report addressed the concerning number of Armed Forces personnel fatalities whilst on training exercises. In this follow-up session, we will focus on what has been achieved since the 2016 report.   

We will consider whether:  

  • actions taken have addressed the concerns raised in the report  
  • lessons have been learnt  
  • a culture of continual learning exists 
  • there is scope for further improvement.
