The focus of this issue is risk management, and examples of some of the successes already achieved by the Coast Guard are highlighted throughout the issue. This article discusses some of the initiatives undertaken to improve the risk management systems such as the development of the Risk-Based Decision-Making Guidelines. These guidelines were provided to the field in early 1997 to support the use of risk as a decision making aid. The guidelines provide a basic primer on the risk management as well as a process for employing these concepts. The three interrelated phases of the process are provided. Under the three phases, develop, deploy and execute, a number of activities and milestones have been developed; they, too, are provided in the article.
