The Workbook was developed as an inventory of hazards and identified mitigations associated with those hazards. It is an online resource that provides that information in a useable format and provides for timely updates to the information as changes, revisions, and additions are identified by subject matter experts and personnel conducting aviation missions. It can be used to organize and capture Risk Assessment Matrix (RAM) results and should be used in conjunction with the NWCG Standards for Aviation Risk Management, PMS 530
. These risk assessments (RAs) are informed by in-depth study of previously conducted missions, activities, associated hazards, and successful mitigations that have helped to reduce the associated risks.
