should make sure all laundry is carefully logged in.  As  you  study  figure  5-2,  notice  the  columns for  the  bulk  log:  (1)  division  or  department,  (2) number of bags received, (3) weight in whites or dungarees,  and  (4)  another  column  for  miscellane- ous items. There are also signature columns for the receiving laundry man and divisional laundry petty  officer  to  check  laundry  in  and  out  and  a column  for  any  additional  remarks. Your  press  deck  log  consists  of  a  record  of individual   officer   and   chief   petty   officer   lots received in the laundry. As you study figure 5-2, notice  the  columns  for  the  press  deck  log. Under  the  column  marked  Other  you  normally list  items  other  than  shirts  or  trousers.  If  space does  not  permit  listing  these  items,  you  should keep  a  separate  press  deck  log  as  indicated  in figure 5-2. At the end of each week, the press deck and bulk   work   logs   are   summarized   on   a   locally prepared laundry summary sheet by the laundry supervisor. This summary sheet is routed to the supply  officer  for  review  and  signature.  A  copy of  the  summary  sheet  should  be  filed  in  the laundry  for  later  reference. EQUIPMENT  MAINTENANCE  LOG The equipment maintenance log is shown in figure 5-3. This log is maintained for the purpose of recording historical repair data. A separate log sheet  should  be  kept  on  each  piece  of  laundry equipment  you  have  aboard  your  ship. HEAT STRESS LOG The heat stress log shown in figure 5-4 is used for the purpose of checking temperatures in the laundry.  Temperature  readings  are  taken  once every  4  hours  and  logged  in.  The  number  of readings  you  take  depends  on  how  many  hours the  laundry  operates;  however,  readings  will  be taken whenever the laundry is manned. If laundry work continues into the night, the log will include each  additional  4-hour  period. HEAT STRESS Heat stress is a very dangerous element in the shipboard  laundry.  It  is  a  combination  of  air temperature,  thermal  radiation,  humidity,  air- flow, and workload that may stress the body as it   tries   to   regulate   body   temperature.   The condition of heat stress can readily cause fatigue, severe headaches, nausea, and poor physical and mental performance. As the temperature of your body  continues  to  increase  due  to  exposure  to  high heat, you run the risk of having heat exhaustion or  a  heatstroke. Listed  below  are  some  of  the  factors  that reduce  the  chances  of  heat  injuries  from  high temperatures in the laundry. Recording temperatures in the heat stress log  each  4-hour  period Inspecting the laundry for conditions that would cause higher heat Reporting  all  temperatures  100°  or  over  as required Following the do’s and don’ts list included in this chapter The  requirements  of  the  Navy’s  heat  stress program  are  included  in  OPNAVINST  5100.20, Shipboard   Heat   Stress   Control   and   Personnel Protection.  A  hanging  dry  bulb  thermometer should  be  permanently  mounted  near  the  wash and press deck. It should be mounted in such a manner that the bulb of the thermometer is not influenced by adjacent or local heat sources. You should record the temperature readings in the heat stress  log  using  these  dry  bulb  thermometers  once every 4 hours. When temperatures are 100°F or more,  you  should  do  the  following: Log the temperature reading and circle it in the heat stress log. Notify the ship’s store officer and medical officer. Leave the laundry until a heat stress survey is  done  by  the  medical  officer. You  should  remain  out  of  the  laundry  until further  directed  on  what  to  do  by  the  medical officer. If the temperature remains high, you will only  be  able  to  work  certain  periods  in  the laundry. These periods are better known as stay times.  These  stay  times  are  determined  by  the medical  officer  and  are  always  followed  by  a recovery period where the laundry personnel will go   to   a   cool   dry   place   to   allow   their   body temperature to return to normal. The stay time is always half of the recovery time. The recovery period  never  exceeds  4  hours  provided  there  is  no evidence  of  cumulative  fatigue. 5-4
