Introduction: Heath is one of the most important issues discussed in all organizations including the arm forces. This study aims to provide a suitable substrate for outsourcing health, safety and environment (HSE) activities in the armed forces, by identifying the various aspects of outsourcing HSE, and reviewing the existing systems related to HSE.
Methods: This documentary research was conducted among the arm forces in 1397-1400. In this study data were extracted using the keywords of the documents searched in the databases. Raw data were provided to experts in the form of questionnaires. Questionnaires were developed by Delphi method and an expert panel.
Results: Results of the questionnaire on different aspects of HSE outsourcing by the panel of experts showed that 17 subsets in 3 areas of health (6 items), safety (6 items) and environment (5 items) are conceivable for outsourcing (military force use external organizations or individual to meet their necessary needs). After developing the systems evaluation questionnaire (A set of laws, regulations, bylaws, instructions, and directives that are developed to address standards of a particular subject, job, or profession), 14 instructions/bylaws related to 10 requirements (what should be observed in systems related to the armed forces) were evaluated, and the results showed that on average, 39% of the systems cover the requirements, 29% need to be reformed, and 32% of the requirements require major reforms.
Conclusion: Findings of this study indicated that the use of systems in a country cannot fully meet the requirements of the armed forces, and requires some fundamental reforms. Also, not all aspects of HSE can be outsourced, and some requirements need to be considered before outsourcing.
