Accepting written evidence; the deadline is Tuesday 24 September 2019.
In 2016 the Defence Committee published a report "Beyond Endurance? Military exercises and the duty of care".
This report examined the overarching policies and guidance of the Ministry of Defence and Armed Forces in respect of the health and safety of service personnel during training, exercises and selection events and whether effective processes existed for learning the lessons from accidents and deaths that occurred during such events.
The Committee indicated when it published the Government response to the report that it would return to this subject to monitor the MoD's progress on the Committee's conclusions and recommendations and the various initiatives outlined by the MoD in its response.
The first follow-up evidence session was held in November 2016.
The second follow-up session will focus on what has been achieved since the publication of the Committee’s report in 2016.
It will consider whether the actions taken have addressed the concerns raised in the initial report, whether lessons have been learnt, whether a culture of continual learning exists and what scope there is for further improvement.
No evidence has been published by the committee yet.
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
