costing  1  cent  per  pound  of  laundry.  Records should  be  kept  if  the  amount  of  work  received from  sick  bay  monthly  is  in  excess  of  $25. Laundry services in excess of $25 are charged to the   ship’s   OPTAR. LAUNDRY  PERSONNEL Personnel  preassigned  to  the  laundry  from  the Ship’s Serviceman complement. The allowance of rated personnel is based on the assumption that an additional number of nonrated personnel will be  required  in  order  to  operate  the  laundry efficiently.   These   additional   personnel,   unless detailed  for  a  specified  time  (3  months  or  less), are  classified  as  strikers  for  the  Ship’s  Serviceman rating. The  organization  of  a  ship’s  laundry  varies with the size of a ship. A small ship, for example, may have a Ship’s Serviceman 2 in charge of the laundry and two Ship’s Servicemen 3 assigned as laundry  personnel.  These  three  persons  receive, wash, and issue finished laundry. They do every- thing necessary in the laundry. A large ship, on the  other  hand,  has  a  much  larger  laundry operation. A new Navy carrier may have as many as 50 Ship’s Servicemen working in the laundry. A guide for determining the number of personnel required  to  perform  the  laundry  function  is  1 laundryman for every 75 to 100 crew members. Figure  5-1  illustrates  the  organization  of  a shipboard laundry on a carrier. This chart gives you a basic idea how duties and responsibilities are administered in the laundry. In a large laundry such as this, each section has its own personnel, although  individuals  might  be  moved  from  one section  to  another  from  time  to  time  to  accom- modate the workload or to provide training and experience.  In  a  small  laundry,  all  these  functions are  performed  with  fewer  personnel  and  less working space. The result is likely to be a simpler organization chart, with each person performing a  variety  of  tasks. LAUNDRY  SUPERVISOR On  a  small  ship,  the  Ship’s  Serviceman  in charge  of  the  laundry  is  responsible  to  the immediate superior for the complete operations. There   may   be   no   experienced   laundry   officer available  to  provide  guidance.  On  a  large  ship, the  ship’s  store  officer  may  operate  the  laundry under the supervision of the supply officer or the supply officer may have an assistant supply officer in charge of the services branch who operates the laundry  under  the  supply  officer’s  direction.  In either instance, the supervisor of the laundry has a   position   comparable   to   that   of   a   civilian manager  of  a  Navy  shore  laundry.  Responsibilities are many and varied according to the size of the laundry supervised. The Ship’s Serviceman supervising the laundry orders supplies; sees that the laundry is kept clean and that the equipment is properly maintained; as- signs  and  trains  laundry  personnel;  maintains  the flow of work through the laundry, maintains the standard  of  quality  required  on  the  ship;  and  does Figure 5-1.—Laundry organization chart on a large ship. 5-2
