Ordnance Mishap Prevention
Naval Safety Supervisor - Military manual on safety practices
General Safety Precautions for Freight/Weapons Elevators and Ammunition Hoists
14. 15. 16. 17. 18. Assign personnel to guide ordnance through scuttles or hatches. Install 1-inch pads on edges of  openings. Refrain  from  competing  with  other  ordnance- handling  parties.  Prohibit  any  other  cargo- handling operations during ordnance-handling operations. Post  warning  signs  during  ordnance-handling operations, and hoist the “BRAVO” flag. Keep  ordnance-handling  parties  small. Alert your immediate supervisor of the need for explosive  ordnance  disposal  (EOD)  personnel to  remove  defective  or  suspected  ammunition from the work area. As a supervisor, you have no authority to waive or alter  NAVSEASYSCOM  and  other  commands’  safety regulations. You cannot permit anyone to deviate from or  violate  these  regulations. Ordnance  Handling  Training  of  Subordinates You now know what your duties as a supervisor are. What are the duties of those personnel you train and supervise?  Operating  personnel  must  read,  understand, and  strictly  follow  all  safety  standards,  requirements, and precautions that apply to their work or duty. Personnel  working  with  hazardous  munitions  must know  that  such  substances  are  designed  to  explode  and are always dangerous. Make sure they are trained to instantly respond to, or initiate, any warning signal. The signal can be oral, visual, audible, or any combination of these. Conduct training on a regular basis to ensure all personnel are aware of the meaning and intent of all warning  signs,  safety  precautions,  and  instructions. In addition, train your subordinates to take the following  actions: 1. 2. 3. 4. Immediately  report  to  their  supervisor  any condition, actions, or equipment or material they consider  unsafe Immediately  warn other personnel when  they are in danger because of known hazards or by their  failure  to  obey  safety  precautions Wear or use approved protective clothing or equipment, as required Immediately report to their supervisor any injury or evidence of impaired health to themselves or others occurring during work or duty 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Warn  others  if  an  unforseen  hazard  occurs  by giving an audible warning; exercise reasonable caution  in  such  appropriate  situations Immediately  report  to  their  supervisor  the presence of unauthorized personnel in the area Thoroughly wash hands after handling ordnance Refrain  from  moving  cracked,  dented,  de- formed,  corroded,  or  otherwise  damaged ordnance Avoid handling ordnance that is “armed” or on which the safety device is off, unless directed otherwise General  Ordnance  Precautions The greatest danger from ordnance is explosion. Because of built-in safety devices, ordnance requires outside  intervention  to  set  it  off  unintentionally.  Fire, excessive  heat,  improper  handling,  or  simple  mis- judgment or mistakes can cause a weapon to detonate. The  major  safety  factor  in  preventing  an  ordnance catastrophe is having a well-experienced and knowl- edgeable person in charge. He or she must identify and correct potential safety hazards. A crew who knows and understands the basics of ordnance safety and has a real respect for ordnance hazards helps its supervisor. The following is a list of general ordnance precautions that you and your subordinates must follow: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Do  not  smoke  or  allow  open  flames  near ordnance. Stop  operations  immediately  if  ordnance  leaks any  material.  Notify  supervisors  who  will  take corrective  action. Use ordnance only for its designed purpose. Make  sure  fire-fighting  equipment  is  available near  ordnance  operations. Do not eat or drink near ordnance. Know   and   understand   decontamination methods if handling chemical ordnance. Get immediate first aid if fuels or oxidizers splash on you. Never enter a space where you suspect liquid fuel leaks without having a gas free survey conducted. Report all mishaps immediately. 9-4
