Handling Two-Shot Detergent
Do  not  wear  starched  clothing. Do not drink commercially prepared liquid electrolyte  supplements  instead  of  water. Past   inspections   conducted   aboard   various ships  have  identified  many  of  the  principal problems   that   may   cause   a   heat   stress environment.  Some  of  these  problems  were  so severe  that  personnel  exposures  had  to  be  limited to  avoid  harm.  These  heat  stress  conditions  are caused  by  the  following: Steam  and  water  leaks Missing  or  deteriorated  insulation  on  steam piping,  valves,  and  machinery Ventilation  system  deficiencies,  such  as missing   or   mutilated   ductwork,   misdirected terminals,   clogged   exhaust   screens,   closed   or partially  closed  Circle  William  dampers,  dirty ventilation  ducting,  and  inoperative  fan  motors and  controllers Ventilation design deficiencies, resulting in less than adequate supply or exhaust air capacity and/or   distribution Even   though   the   above   conditions   are identified and corrective action taken, there may still be instances where a heat stress situation may occur. Some examples include ship operations in hot  and  humid  climates,  performance  of  hard physical tasks, and so forth. While working in the laundry, you should be aware of conditions that may cause a heat stress condition and report all problems to the laundry supervisor so corrective action  can  be  taken. LAUNDRY  SECURITY Security of the laundry is the responsibility of all   laundry   personnel.   You   must   take   proper security  measures  to  protect  the  laundry  from  loss of  personal  clothing,  damage  to  equipment,  loss of  supplies,  and  unauthorized  use. The  ship’s  laundry  is  a  group  IV  space,  and the  keys  to  the  laundry  should  be  handled  as outlined in chapter 1 of this manual. The ship’s laundry should not be used after working hours except when final approval is obtained from the ship’s store officer. The laundry should never be used  by  unauthorized  personnel.  Use  of  the laundry  by  unauthorized  personnel  can  cause  a variety  of  problems  including  the  following: Possible laundry fires due to not following safety  precautions  and  lack  of  training Damage  to  equipment  due  to  operating incorrectly Injury  to  unauthorized  users  due  to  lack of   knowledge   of   safety   devices   on equipment  and  safety  precautions  in  the laundry Loss  of  personal  clothing  or  supplies  due to  theft A laundry fire can cause thousands of dollars in  damage.  Damage  to  equipment  can  run  into loss of production capabilities and longer working hours  for  all  laundry  personnel.  Injury  to unauthorized  users  could  range  from  burning  a hand on a press to heat injuries due to heat stress. STOWAGE  AND  HANDLING  OF LAUNDRY  SUPPLIES Standard  stock  laundry  chemicals  are  requisi- tioned   from   supply   activities   ashore.   These laundry  supplies  are  used  in  conjunction  with  the Navy wash formula to launder clothing. Laundry personnel  should  be  familiar  with  the  proper handling  and  stowage  of  all  laundry  supplies especially  the  supplies  used  in  the  wash  cycle.  See figure  5-5. The proper stowage and handling of supplies is essential in order to prevent health and safety hazards. Stowage space aboard ship is normally limited, and some planning is required to make sure space is used efficiently. Laundry chemicals must  be  stowed  in  a  bulk  storeroom.  Chemical supplies  in  the  laundry  should  be  limited  to  those amounts   needed   for   a   1-week   period.   Heavy laundry  supplies  should  be  stowed  close  to  the laundry and small items kept in bins to prevent loss. Items such as pins, laundry net bags, or other pilferable  items  should  be  kept  under  lock  and key.   Rust   remover   or   stain   removal   supplies should be stored in a cool, dry space. Within the laundry, chemicals should be stowed in a metal bin using bin liners or plastic bags. The sequence of stowage in this metal bin should be two-shot detergent,  laundry  sour,  and  starch. 5-6
