7.  Collisions. Normally, traffic between drafts and stowed   cargo   should   keep   to   the   right. Personnel should be cautioned to be alert to avoid foot injuries caused by the dropping or shifting of heavy objects. Care should be taken in   operating   forklifts,   tow   motors,   etc.,   to prevent   collisions   with   obstructions   and personnel. 8. Standing in the bight of a line. Personnel should be cautioned never to stand in the bight of a line or the eye of a cargo strap or sling. The result might be the loss of leg(s) or more serious injury. SLIPPING AND FALLING During loading and offloading there are several potential  dangers  which  may  cause  slipping  and  falling. Some of the most common of these are described as follows: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Open hatches. Guards should be posted near open hatches, and safety lines must be rigged around such openings when stores are being loaded  or  offloaded. Temporarily   covered   hatches.   Temporarily covered  hatches,  such  as  hatches  covered  with tarpaulins, may offer a greater danger than open hatches.  Such  coverings  should  not  be  used except   when   absolutely   necessary   due   to inclement  weather,  etc. Riding  hooks  or  loads  being  hoisted.  During  the loading of stores, personnel should never be allowed to ride cargo-handling equipment such as hooks, cargo nets, pallets, etc., being hoisted from the dock to the ship. Removed   handrails.   When   handrails   are removed  to  load  stores  or  for  other  reasons, guards must be posted or the working area roped off to prevent personnel from falling overboard. Ladders. Personnel should not be allowed to use ladders in the square of a hatch when stores are being lowered or hoisted in the hatch. Great care should be exercised in the use of ladders when hatchboards from several decks have been removed. Stairway-type ladders should be used when  practicable  and  available. Defective   wharf.   The   inspection   and maintenance of the wharf or pier are primarily the  responsibility  of  the  shore  station.  However, 7. defective flooring, etc., should be reported by the  Storekeeper  immediately  upon  detection  of the  defect. Slippery decks. To prevent injury to personnel, a slippery material such as oil, grease, or ice on decks and piers should be removed at once or covered with sand, cinders, sawdust, or other antislip material. SHIPMENT OF PERSONAL EFFECTS Personal  effects  consist  of  articles  having  an intimate relation to the owner or custodian. They may include  Navy-owned  special  clothing  and  equipment, clothing prescribed by the  Navy  Uniform  Regulations, money,  negotiable  and  nonnegotiable  instruments,  and miscellaneous articles of intrinsic, sentimental, and utility  value. You may be called upon from time to time to effect disposition   of   personal   effects   that   were   lost, abandoned,  or  unclaimed.  They  may  have  belonged  to personnel  missing,  deceased,  desired  absentees,  or deserters.  When  the  owner  of  personal  effects  cannot be located, every effort must be made to locate the next of kin, the heir, or the legal representative of the owner. It is the responsibility of commanding officers afloat and ashore to initiate inquiries for this purpose. As  a  member  of  the  supply  department,  you  may share some of these responsibilities. Upon receipt of personal  effects,  the  supply  department  is  responsible for   their   custody,   storage,   security,   shipment, disposition,  and  for  the  maintenance  of  adequate records  of  them.  Detailed  instructions  for  conducting the   inventory   of   personal   effects   and   preparing NAVSUP  Form  29  are  found  in  NAVSUP  P-485.  A sample NAVSUP Form 29 (both front and reverse sides) is shown in figures 14-18 and 14-19. A Storekeeper afloat is seldom concerned with the shipment  of  household  goods.  At  a  shore  station, however,  an  SK  may  be  assigned  to  a  billet  requiring knowledge  about  shipments.  Before  you  can  advance in rate, therefore, you must meet the qualifications covering  the  shipment  of  household  goods. Shipment  of  personal  effects  is  accomplished  using DD  Form  1199  (see  figure  14-20).  NAVSUP  P-485 contains instructions for preparing it as a shipping document  for  personal  effects. 14-22
