Preventable injuries can never be identified without some type of injury surveillance. 

Once preventable injuries are identified, a unit must be willing to enact and enforce corrective policies and procedures. 

Injury surveillance sets the basis for focused investigations, evidence-based recommendations, and best practice guidance. See Army Injury Prevention​ products.
