JRAT Beta Test Release
The Joint Risk Assessment Tool (JRAT) is being developed to replace the Ground Risk Assessment Tool (GRAT) developed for the Army in 2008. It features enhanced usability and performance capabilities based largely on feedback and recommended improvements from GRAT users.
As the name implies, JRAT is a joint-Service tool that contains portals for the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. Each portal provides users with overall Service-specific mishap statistics in addition to mishap vignettes, mishap summaries, and guidance and resources related to a given mission type. This content is user focused to provide relevant information for the production of an automated Deliberate Risk Assessment Worksheet (DRAW).
The DRAWs provide users the option to create their own mission types, subtasks, hazards and controls along with the ability to select from potential subtasks, hazards and controls identified for various pre-populated mission types and off-duty activities. This allows users the opportunity to capture subtasks, hazards and controls they may not have previously considered.
In addition to the ability to send a DRAW to the Approval Authority and Reviewer, JRAT also allows the user to share their worksheet with others for collaboration prior to submitting it for approval.
To produce the best product possible we are seeking user feedback on this beta version of JRAT. This beta release is made available to allow a broad user base to test and evaluate the tool. Our goal is to identify any outstanding bugs or issues in order to correct them prior to full release.
Whether or not you are a regular user of GRAT, here's an important opportunity to help us make JRAT a great tool to assist you with your risk management process.
If you discover any issues with JRAT during your testing we would greatly appreciate a detailed description of the issue along with a screen shot or snip of the screen(s).
The beta test period will end on 5 Feb 19. We look forward to hearing from you. Please send your feedback to
