You can use Plan of the Day (POD) notes, posters, stand-up  lectures,  and  video  tapes  to  help  you  with  this training. You can also use athletic team training as another way to train personnel in athletic safety. The following are some of the recreation, athletics, and  home  safety  topics  that  should  be  covered  during training each year: Basketball  (responsible  for  the  most  lost  time  of any  sport) Physical fitness Water sports Racquetball Football Softball Hobby safety Qualification  Training Patrons using recreational watercraft and Navy automotive and woodworking hobby-shop equipment expose themselves to high-hazard activities. Morale, welfare, and recreation (MWR) staff members make sure  only  qualified  patrons  safely  operate  watercraft, power tools, hydraulic lifts, and spray paint booths. Staff members should keep a record of those who qualify. Competent MWR staff members should conduct training  in  the  use  of  this  equipment.  They  should emphasize  the  use  of  safety  precautions,  safety  equip ment  guards,  and  personal  protective  equipment  (PPE). The health hazards associated with spray painting require  additional  precautions.  MWR  employees  must advise  patrons  in  writing  of  the  hazards  spray  painting poses.  An  MWR  employee  must  observe  patrons throughout  the  spray  painting  evolution. Qualification training for watercraft includes basic rules  of  the  road,  knowledge  of  personal  flotation devices (PFDs), applicable safety requirements, and emergency  procedures.  Successfully  completing  a  small boat safety course, such as that offered by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, is evidence of qualification. Recordkeeping of Training Commands must maintain all training records for 2 years.  Documentation  should  include  a  log  of  scheduled training, dates of training, and names of personnel attending.  Each  department  should  maintain  its  own 11-2 training records. These records will be available for annual  inspections. FACILITIES EVALUATION AND INSPECTIONS Recreational and hobby facilities and equipment used by military patrons and dependents will be of safe design. The facility must provide a safe and healthful setting for patrons as well as workers. Each  command  must  inspect  and  evaluate  its recreational  facilities  and  equipment  annually.  These facilities and equipment include game rooms, hobby shops,  shipboard  gyms,  and  workout  and  weight-lifting areas. Ashore, they include all the facilities run by fleet recreation  and  special  services.  Ships  with  enough athletic equipment to checkout, such as volleyballs and basketballs, must also have written recreational safety measures.   Naval   Safety   Center   (NAVSAFECEN) policies require these measures to reduce the possibility of injury to participants and spectators. The safety and health personnel and the designated RAHS Program manager should jointly conduct the inspection.  The  inspection  identifies  hazards  and ensures the execution of abatement plans. NMPCINST 1710.6A, Aquatic Programs and Facilities, governs the inspection of swimming pools and waterfront areas. Applicable Navy standards govern the inspection of other  recreational  facilities.  A  summary  of  these standards  and  other  requirements  for  program administration is available from the NAVSAFECEN. Personnel checking out athletic equipment must ensure it is in good condition. Staff personnel should check gym equipment for sharp edges, loose or worn parts, and obstruction hazards. Poorly made athletic equipment, which may not stand up to heavy use, should not be used. PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT You have no choice about wearing several types of personal  protective  equipment  (PPE).  BUPERSINST 1710.20 states that personnel must wear approved eye protection  when  playing  squash,  handball,  and racquetball. Eye protection is not the only PPE required during  an  athletic  event.  Certain  athletic  events  and work at the hobby shop require the use of mouthpieces, hand  protection,  and  other  types  of  protective equipment. Did you know that mouthpieces are credited with preventing about 200,000 injuries in high school and  college  football  alone?
