Appendix I - References - 14167_181
Mishaps  in  the  category  of  “home,  sports,  and recreation” rank second only to privately owned motor vehicle accidents as a major cause of accidental injury. Sports and recreational injuries cost the Navy millions of dollars each year and result in a loss of countless man-years of work. In addition, these injuries result in impaired combat effectiveness because of the loss of skilled  personnel—some  temporarily  disabled  and others  permanently  handicapped. In  sports  mishaps  involving  the  category  of “supervisory deficiencies,” the major factor is inade- quate  instruction.  That  shows  the  need  for  sound coaching and officiating of athletic contests. Is the intent of athletic contests to develop the body and a com- petitive spirit or just to win? You can effectively reduce injuries in sports and recreation by following these principles: Use  proven  administrative  controls Effectively lead and supervise Provide and maintain adequate facilities Properly  condition  participants equipment  and You can prevent mishaps at home and in sports and recreation  by  identifying,  isolating,  eliminating,  or controlling hazards. You should guard against those hazards  you  cannot  eliminate.  Finally,  avoid  creating new hazards. Refer to OPNAVINST 5102.1C, Mishap Investi- gation and Reporting, for a list of the requirements for investigation and reporting of mishaps ashore. You must report any fatality or injury that occurs on government property, whether it involves civilian personnel, military personnel, or military dependents. Additionally, report fatalities or injuries that occur in conjunction with command-sponsored  events  off  government  property. Afloat, mishaps are reported based on OPNAVINST 5100.21B, Afloat  Mishap  Investigation  and  Reporting, In general, an injury is reportable if the injured person loses at least 5 working days because of that injury. All fatalities are reportable. These reports are sent to the Naval  Safety  Center  within  30  days  of  the  mishap. SUMMARY In  this  chapter,  we  addressed  the  Navy  Recreation, Athletics,  and  Home  Safety  Program.  We  examined  the various  types  of  personal  protective  equipment  (PPE) individuals must wear when taking part in various sporting, athletic, and home activities. We discussed the various  training  Navy  personnel  must  receive.  We addressed various recreational safety controls com- mands  and  supervisors  must  follow.  We  discussed safety  precautions  for  various  recreation  and  athletic activities,  including  water  sports.  We  covered  various home  hazards  and  safety  precautions.  Finally,  we examined  the  reporting  and  investigating  requirements for recreation and sports mishaps. 11-15
