Hazardous Material Storerooms and Lockers
RELOCATION OF MATERIAL IN STOWAGE Transfer  of  material  between  storerooms  or  to different  locations  in  the  same  storeroom  will  be supervised  by  the  leading  storeroom  Storekeeper,  who will make sure that      material is protected from loss or damage during the  move     material is correctly stowed in the new location new  locations  are  promptly  and  accurately recorded  in  the  materials  stock  records  (and inventory/locator  records  if  maintained). TYPES AND QUANTITIES OF MATERIAL In  allocating  available  space,  consideration  must  be given to the categories of material that must be stowed separately  (e.g.,  ship’s  stem  stock  food,  clothing,  bulk consumables, repair parts), and the volume of stowage space  needed  for  the  required  quantities  in  each category. MATERIAL  CHARACTERISTICS In allocating stowage space, consideration must be given  to  the  physical  characteristics  of  the  material  to be stowed (i.e., weight and size, fragility, perishability, flammability, susceptibility to theft, damage from heat or moisture, and other properties that may affect the safety of the ship or the crew). STOREROOM  CHARACTERISTICS The number, locations, shapes, and sizes of supply department  storerooms  vary  significantly  in  each  type of ship. Therefore, each supply officer must carefully study  the  configuration  and  capacity  of  available stowage spaces when determining the type and quantity of  material  to  be  stowed  in  each.  The  location  of storeroom  doors,  hatches,  stanchions,  ventilation  ducts, overhead   fixtures,   and   other   structures   must   be considered   in   planning   the   stowage   layout. Architectural  “obstructions”  are  altered,  when  possible and  as  necessary,  to  create  additional  space. SPACE LAYOUT FACTORS To  the  maximum  extent  that  available  space permits, you must adhere to the following guidelines when stowing general stems: Locate heavy bulk materials in areas convenient to  hatches  and  materials-handling  equipment. This  minimizes  the  physical  effort  required  for loading, stowage, and breakouts. Locate  light  bulky  material  in  storerooms  with high overhead clearances for maximum use of available  space. Segregate  unlike  materials  (e.g.,  hazardous  vs nonhazardous,  classified  vs  unclassified,  large vs small). Locate frequently requested material, such as selected  item  maintance  (SIM)  items,  as  close  as possible to the point of issue as possible, in a storeroom that is convenient to maintenance personnel. Locate shelf-life items in a readily accessible area  to  facilitate  periodic  screening. Install appropriate stowage aids in spaces where they can be effectively used. Provide  for  aisles  at  least  30  inches  wide between bins, racks, and/or cabinets. Arrange  materials  with  identification  labels facing outward to facilitate issues and inventory. Avoid multiple locations for the same item. STOWAGE   AIDS Storerooms  are  outfitted  with  bins,  racks,  shelving, and other stowage aids best suited for the types and quantities of materials to be stowed. When installed stowage aids need to be modified or relocated, or when additionally   required   stowage   aids   must   be manufactured by a repair ship or shipyard, the supply officer must submit an appropriate work,  request to the ship’s engineer officer in accordance with the Ship’s Maintenance and Material Management (3-M) Manual (OPNAVINST   4790.4). TYPES OF STOREROOMS You  will  usually  have  the  types  of  storerooms main issue, bulk, and repair parts. Main Issue Storeroom The  main  issue  storeroom  is  the  place  the  supply officer  designates  as  the  centralized  distribution  point for most SIM and shelf-life items. Generally it is the most readily accessible of all stock material stowage spaces when watertight integrity restrictions are in 6-9
