Reportable Shore Mishaps
NAVINSGEN  provides  Chief  of  Naval  Operations (CNO)  with  a  semiannual  summary  of  inspection results, including a summary evaluation of program effectiveness. You can get help in preparing for a management evaluation   or   NAVINSGEN   inspection   from   the following   sources: NAVOSH Program Evaluation Guide for Shore Activities,  NAVSAFECEN  PUB  5100/1 NAVSAFECEN,  Code  41,  commercial  phone number  (804)  444-6043  or  DSN  564-6043 INSPECTIONS AND INVESTIGATIONS BY OSHA OFFICIALS Certain  ships,  Navy  Facilities,  and  private  sector contractor  sites  at  Navy  facilities  are  subject  to Department  of  Labor  (DOL)  inspections.  The  DOL carries out the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHACT). The OSHACT provides for the develop- ment, issuance, and enforcement of standards. Civilian employees,  Navy  or  contractor,  are  protected  by  OSHA. Contractor  Inspections The  OSHACT  defines  DOD  contractors,  operating from DOD or privately owned facilities located on or off Navy shore installations, as employers. They are subject  to  enforcement  authority  by  federal  and  certain state  OSHA  officials. Normally,  federal  and  state  OSHA  officials  are authorized  to  enter  contractor  workspaces  without  delay and   at   reasonable   times   to   conduct   inspections. However,  officials  must  arrange  to  provide  the  proper credentials  authorizing  the  inspection  before  their  visit. They will be accompanied by representatives of the shore  activity. A state may exercise jurisdiction over OSH matters involving  a  contractor  workplace  at  a  Navy  shore installation provided the state has an OSH plan approved by the Secretary of Labor. Only  federal  OSHA  officials  may  perform inspections  in  DOD  contractor  workplaces  situated  in areas  where  the  United  States  holds  exclusive  federal jurisdiction, such as aboard naval vessels. Chapter 11 of OPNAVINST  5100.23C  covers  various  federal jurisdiction  exceptions  and  exemptions. Navy Civilian Inspections Federal  OSHA  officials,  acting  as  representatives  of the  Secretary  of  Labor,  are  authorized  to  conduct amounted  or  unannounced  inspections  of  all  Navy civilian  workplaces.  Exclusions  are  workplaces  in foreign  countries  and  military  workplaces  staffed exclusively   with   military   personnel.   Workplaces excluded  from  these  inspections  may  be  scheduled  as part  of  DOL’s  targeted  inspection  program.  This scheduling may occur as a result of an annual evaluation of the DOD OSH Program or in response to a complaint from   a   Navy   civilian   employee   or   employee representative.  OSHA  may  also  conduct  an  inspection solely at the discretion of the Secretary of Labor. Navy  activities  employing  civilians  will  have  a designated  coordinator  with  whom  federal  OSHA officials interface for inspection purposes. Before an inspection,   OSHA   officials   must   present   their credentials  and  inform  the  chain  of  command  of  their visit.  During  the  inspection,  they  must  abide  by  certain restrictions  in  taking  photographs  and  accessing r e c o r d s . Federal  OSHA  officials  are  authorized  to  interview civilian  employees  or  to  be  accompanied  by  employee representatives  during  the  inspection.  Reports  and deficiency  notices  generated  by  federal  OSHA  officials are sent up the chain of command to the CNO. Special requirements  exist  concerning  access  to  areas  requiring security   clearances. As a safety supervisor, you should know that OSHA may   inspect   the   work   site   of   Navy   civilians   or contractors. Federal OSHA officials may inspect Navy civilian work sites. Federal and state OSHA officials may inspect contractor work sites. Aboard ship, only federal OSHA officials may inspect Navy civilian or contractor work sites (fig. 6-4). If your work center or area is staffed exclusively with  military  personnel,  OSHA  officials  have  no jurisdiction and are not authorized to conduct work-site inspections.  NAVOSH  regulations  cover  inspections  of work centers or areas staffed strictly with military personnel.  Chapter  11  of  OPNAVINST  5100.23C provides  details  on  these  inspections. MISHAP REPORTING FOR SHORE ACTIVITIES In chapter 4, we discussed mishap investigation techniques  and  procedures.  Mishap  reporting  differs  for 6-8
