We  will  now  examine  general  safety  standards  that apply  to  all  shipboard  operations  and  spaces.  The following 40 standards may save your life! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. Locate and remember all exits from working and  living  spaces  that  you  frequent. Know the storage location of life jackets in or near working and living spaces. Make sure you secure or lash down all movable objects in your spaces. Always  wear  clothing  that  snugly  fits  your body. Carry a load in a reamer that allows one hand to be free when practical. Always move up or down a ladder with one hand on the railing. Know the emergency shutdown procedures for all  equipment  you  use. Make  sure  you  do  not  block  exits  with equipment or boxes. Ensure ventilation ducts are free of blockage. Prohibit  horseplay  aboard  ship. Prevent   personnel   from   wearing   rings, watches, key rings, and other items that might become entangled or caught on projections. Always  wear  approved  safety  shoes  when  the job requires it. Carry as little in your pockets as possible. Walk, don’t run in passageways. Be cautious when nearing a “blind” corner. Know  the  location  of  all  lifeboat  and  liferraft stations. Know how to proceed to them from your living and working spaces. Identify the location of all fire stations and other  fire-fighting  equipment  in  or  near  your living  or  workspaces. Keep  constantly  familiar  with  the  whereabouts of crewmembers in the space where you are working. That is especially important if the work is in tanks, voids, or other restricted- movement  areas. Smoke only in designated areas. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. Use equipment in an authorized manner, and make  sure  it  is  used  only  by  authorized personnel. Wear  sunglasses  topside  only. Close and dog watertight doors if so designated during  normal  operations. Know the location of life rings, watermarkers, and   flares. Know  the  areas  where  you  should  wear protective  equipment. Inform senior personnel responsible for a given space  or  equipment  if  you  discover  unsafe conditions. Do  not  lean  against  lifelines. Keep decks free of obstacles and materials causing  slippery  conditions.  Post  slippery  areas with a warning sign. Make sure you install nonskid  around  machinery  work  areas. Provide temporary protection by guardrails or chains, suitably supported by stanchions or pads,  when  opening  accesses  in  bulkheads  or decks  normally  closed. Never straddle or step over lines, wire, and chains  under  tension. Wear a life jacket topside where the potential exists of falling, slipping, or being thrown or carried into the water. Never  lock  escape  scuttles  so  personnel  cannot open them from the inside. Never dismantle or remove any lifeline or hang or secure any weight or line to any lifeline except  as  authorized  by  the  commanding officer. Never dismantle or remove any inclined or vertical ladder without permission from the commanding officer. Secure such areas with temporary lifelines and post with a warning sign. Never  operate  machinery  or  equipment  with defective  safety  devices  without  permission  of the  commanding  officer. Never tamper with or render ineffective any safety  device,  interlock,  ground  strap,  or similar device intended to protect operators or equipment  without  the  approval  of  the commanding  officer. 7-9
