Safety Program indoctrination and annual refresher training that includes the following topics: An introduction to the Afloat Safety program, the identity  of  key  safety  personnel,  and  the  identity of  safety  chain  of  command  personnel Detailed  information  on  mishap  prevention, investigation, and reporting with emphasis on privileged  information Safety  precautions  and  safety  standards Hazard  identification  and  reporting  procedures You may wish to use the NAVOSH Training Guide for Forces Afloat,  NAVEDTRA  10074,  in  conducting the   shipboard   training   required   by   OPNAVINST 5100.19B. The training guide combines occupational health and safety subject matter into 20 generic lesson guides, complete with quizzes and handouts. It also provides lists of available training aids, video tapes, and formal   course   information.   It   supplies   a   sample long-range training plan, references, and a technical assistance guide. Instructors for the afloat training guides should be E-5 or above, preferably safety petty officers or medical department representatives. The instructor does not have to be a subject matter expert. Make afloat safety and occupational health training apart of your command training  plan.  Include  it  as  GMT  in  the  long-range training plan for your ship. FORMAL TRAINING FOR SHIPBOARD SAFETY AND HEALTH PROGRAMS In addition to shipboard training, several shore courses  are  offered  for  shipboard  personnel.  Fleet training centers, the Naval Safety Center, the Naval Safety  School,  and  Navy  Environmental  and  Preventive Medicine  Units  (NEPMUs)  conduct  the  training.  The NAVOSH  training  incorporated  into  these  courses reinforces basic and specialty training. This training provides  direct  support  toward  the  management  of hazard-specific  programs  associated  with  the  NAVOSH Program.  Formal  NAVOSH  training  provides  personnel with information on how to detect hazards, perform surveillance,   report   deficiencies,   report   mishaps, conduct  training,  and  achieve  program  elements.  The NAVOSH  Training  Guide  for  Forces  Afloat, NAVEDTRA  10074,  lists  these  courses. Formal safety training was upgraded in 1991 in response to a tasking from the Chief of Naval Operations for an improved Afloat Safety Program. The Naval Safety Center developed two new safety officer courses and helped to revise the safety supervisor course. The following formal training is provided for the surface ship  and  submarine  safety  organization: AFLOAT   SAFETY   OFFICER   COURSE (A-4J-0020)—This  10-day  course  trains  commissioned officers,   warrant   officers,   and   Military   Sealift Command  first  officers  who  have  been  or  will  be assigned as a command’s safety officer. The course concentrates on preparing primary and collateral duty safety officers to manage the program aboard their commands. The Surface Warfare Officer School staff in Newport, Rhode Island, presents the course, which they export to major fleet home ports. The course uses OPNAVINST 5100.19B to provide instruction on hazard identification (inspections and industrial  hygiene  surveys),  medical  surveillance,  and hazard  abatement.  It  also  covers  program  evaluation, training, safety standards and regulations, and the Safety Council   and   Enlisted   Safety   Committee.   It   also addresses  the  major  hazard-specific  and  support  pro- grams   and   the   detailed   instruction   on   mishap investigation and reporting. This course is required for staff and shipboard primary and collateral duty safety officers. SUBMARINE  SAFETY  OFFICER  COURSE (F-4J-0020)—This 4-day course is a condensed version of the 10-day Afloat Safety Officer course. It is tailored exclusively   for   submarine,   collateral-duty   safety officers.  The  submarine  training  facilities  at  Norfolk, Virginia, and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, present the course. This course provides the same topics as the afloat course but drops the surface-ship-unique topics. All collateral duty  submarine  safety  officers  should  complete  either this course or the Afloat Safety Officer course. SAFETY  PROGRAMS  AFLOAT  COURSE (J-493-2099)—This 5-day course, presented at fleet training  centers,  provides  specialized  NAVOSH training to senior enlisted personnel. Anyone who takes the course must be an E-5 or above who has been, or will be, assigned to duty as a division safety petty officer or safety supervisor. One-half of the division safety petty officers from each ship will attend this course before, or within 6 months of, their assignment. Training covers information on workplace monitoring, hazard identification,   hazard   abatement,   and   deficiency correction. In addition, personnel receive training on rating the division safety program, safety standards and regulations,  mishap  or  near-mishap  investigations,  and division safety training. 7-6
