What are the basic requirements (NAVOSH) Respiratory Protection Program?
Program for personnel who must enter an area where the use of respirators for 15 minutes or less, shall be provided and use the appropriate respirator equipment.
Hearing Conservation Program
Environments that contain or equipment that produces potentially hazardous noise levels, be modified at acceptable noise levels.
Periodic hearing tests shall be conducted and monitored.
Educate individuals by providing hearing conservation services.
Sight Conservation Program
Eye hazards shall be considered due to any exposure to various forms of electromagnetic radiation.
Written certification, requiring date, identifing all areas designated as eye hazard and person making the certification.
Appropriate Warning signs posted at all eye hazard areas.
Eye wash stations shall be provided in any area being exposed to corrosive materials.
Any individual with 20/200 in 1 eye shall be considered visually impaired.
Any not assigned duties, which would present a hazard to his/her remaining eye.
Required wearing eye protection to protect their remaining sight even if they do not work in eye hazard areas.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Determines if hazards are present that necessitate the use of PPE.
Verify that the work place hazard assessment has been performed through a written certification that identifies the workplace evaluated, the person certifying that the evaluation has been performed, the date's of assessment and identifies the document as a certification of hazard assessment.
Select & have each affected employee use the types of PPE that will protect them from the hazards identified in the hazard assessment.
Communicate selection decisions to each affected employee.
Identify the F/A-18 DANGER areas.
A. Flammable liquids, compressed gases-areas including hydraulic reservoirs, fuel tanks, nitrogen charge struts, high pressure accumulators.
B. Canopy, seat and DFIRs explosive devices-many explosive devices are located throughout the airframe which have rocket motors, initiators and thrusters also controls that require special handling.
C. Airframe and external stores-external fuel tanks, vertical ejection racks missiles launchers and conventional/nuclear weapons loaded on the wing or fuselage centerline pylons may be ejected. The area near those devices must be considered hazardous.
D. Engine-danger areas resulting from engine operation are related to exhaust velocity and temperature, air intakes and high noise levels.
E. Radar antenna-operation of the radar makes this a radiation hazard to personnel.
F. APU exhaust-extreme caution should be used during A/C start up this hazard area presents a high temp area.
Identify the minimum safe distance from turning A/C intakes/exhaust at the following power settings:
Idle-9 Feet radius intake/ 115-155 feet from exhaust
Military-25 feet radius from intake/ 325-725 Feet from exhaust
Maximum-25 Feet radius from intake/ 850-925 Feet from exhaust.
State the purpose and identify the location of the A/C STEP, NO STEP areas:
Areas to Avoid: Leading Edge Flaps, Trailing Edge Flaps, horizontal stabilators, ailerons, and radome surfaces.
Areas that are designated, as walkways will have a NON-SKID on the surface also the wings themselves are considered walkways.
Protective shoe covering should always be worn when walking on A/C.
To avoid in damaging the composite material through out the A/C structure extreme caution should be used with toolboxes and heavy parts with sharp edges.
State the general safety precautions associated with applying and removing external power.
Circuit breakers and switches must be position as specified in the required MIMS. Failure to comply may cause A/C systems to be energized, resulting in injury or damage equipment.
To prevent shock and damage to A/C inspect power cables and cable assembly plugs for pin internal corrosion and damage or missing insulator washer or sleeves.
Ensure power source is secured prior to application and removal.
If using a mobile power unit ensure power unit is chocked and facing away from A/C.
Identify the personnel danger area during Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) operations.
Center point of the APU exhaust it's exhaust velocity reaches 142 MPH from exhaust to the deck with a temp of 328-350 Fahrenheit degrees.
At 19 in. diameter the exhaust reaches a 24 MPH with a temp range of 250-300 Fahrenheit.
State the precautions/restrictions that apply to performing maintenance on ordnance loaded A/C.
Major maintenance on A/C is prohibited.
Minor maintenance and routine servicing necessary to ready the A/C for the next launch may be conducted after all weapons have been safeties to the maximum degree as specified in loading check list.
Identify the precautions that must be observed when handling graphite or carbon/epoxy composite materials.
Wear respirators and goggles when exposed to these materials and in addition, wear close weave cotton gloves when handling these materials.
1. Composite material normally does not present a hazard until the composite material is broken and fiber has been exposed raising health concerns.
2. Fiber will embed into exposed skin and become difficult to remove.
3. The inhalation of graphite composite fibers resulting from A/C fires and/or A/C material damage may be harmful to personnel.
