Laundry Personnel
CHAPTER 5 THE SHIP’S LAUNDRY One  of  the  supply  officer’s  responsibilities  is to provide laundry service to the ship’s crew. This is  done  through  the  operation  of  the  ship’s laundry which is operated by Ship’s Servicemen. The  laundry  service  provided  is  directly  in  line with the overall mission of the Navy. This service provides   shipboard   personnel   with   living   and working conditions that will result in a high state of crew morale, health and comfort, adequate to sustain maximum personnel effectiveness, and to support  an  increase  in  personnel  retention. The  ship’s  laundry  works  on  a  workflow concept;  that  is,  laundry  is  routed  through  one work station to another until it is completed. The main  purpose  of  this  workflow  is  to  obtain efficient  production.   As   a   Ship’s   Serviceman working   in   the   laundry,   you   need   to   become familiar with the different tasks that make up this laundry   workflow. This chapter provides working personnel in the ship’s   laundry   with   information   and   facts concerning  the  operation  of  the  laundry.  It  also covers  the  tasks  involved  in  processing  laundry from the receipt of bundles or bulk work through the  assembly  and  issue  of  the  finished  work  to  the individual  or  division. SAFETY Safety is discussed throughout this chapter and is a very important aspect of the laundry process. Safety   cannot   be   overemphasized.  The  safety precautions  for  shipboard  laundries  are  contained in Navy Safety Precautions Afloat,  OPNAVINST 5100.19A,   chapter   13,   section   2.   The   laundry supervisor   is   responsible   for   making   sure   all laundry  personnel  have  safe  work  practices. Technical  manuals  for  each  piece  of  equipment list the safety precautions and safety features for that  equipment.  A  list  of  safety  precautions  for each  piece  of  equipment  should  be  posted  near the  machine  for  all  laundry  personnel  to  read, remember,  and  practice. These  charges  will  also  cover  the  cost  of  operating supplies for the barbershop and the dry-cleaning plant. Charges  are  also  made  for  laundry  service provided  for  the  sick  bay  when  the  charges  exceed $25  per  month.  Charges  are  based  on  services 5-1 SANITATION The   purpose   of   the   ship’s   laundry   is   to produce   clean   clothing   through   the   laundry process. This washing process should be done in a sanitary manner. The medical officer or senior Hospital  Corpsman  aboard  should  inspect  the laundry frequently to make sure laundry spaces are kept in a sanitary condition as outlined in the Manual of Naval Preventive Medicine,  NAVMED P-5010,  chapter  2. The  senior  medical  officer  aboard  ship  pre- pares  the  sanitation  requirements.  If  a  medical officer  is  not  attached  aboard  ship,  the  senior Hospital  Corpsman  aboard  prepares  the  sanita- tion  requirements.  These  sanitation  requirements are posted in the laundry for all laundry personnel to  read  and  rigidly  endorse.  The  ship’s  store officer should inspect the laundry each business day   to   make   sure   sanitation   regulations   are complied  with. CHARGES  FOR  LAUNDRY  SERVICE Normally laundry service aboard ship is free. The  materials  used  in  processing  laundry  are  paid for through the profits made by the ship’s store. In certain cases these profits, generated through the ship’s store, may not be sufficient enough to cover  the  cost  of  the  supplies  necessary  to  operate the  laundry  and  the  commanding  officer  may authorized the collection of the following charges on  a  monthly  basis: Officers $1.25 Midshipmen  and  chief  petty .75 officers Other  enlisted  personnel .35
