2 The CO will ensure a HCP is maintained in their command.  The goal of the hearing conservation program (HCP) is to prevent occupational hearing loss and assure auditory fitness for duty of all Navy personnel. The CO will ensure a HCP is maintained in their command.  The goal of the hearing conservation program (HCP) is to prevent occupational hearing loss and assure auditory fitness for duty of all Navy personnel. 2

3  He/She shall do three things: 1. Request assistance from an industrial hygienist or occupational audiologist to conduct noise measurement and exposure analysis (survey) of areas and equipment. 2. Maintain a record of noise hazardous areas and equipment. 3. Periodically reviews records for any trends that could indicate inadequate use of hearing protection. 3

4 He/She shall:  (1) Maintain and ensure proper calibration of sound level measuring equipment.  (2) Annually, certify audiometric testing booths installed aboard the ships. 4

5  He/She shall 1. Ensure personnel with hazardous hearing exposure use proper hearing protection. 2. Ensure that a space or piece of equipment that is designated as noise hazardous is properly posted and labeled. 3. Ensure all personnel required to wear personal hearing protection are trained 4. Ensure personnel report for scheduled audiometric testing and training. 5. Ensure that personnel who require hearing retests due to a significant threshold shift (STS) are excluded from hazardous noise areas 6. Coordinates with medical department representative to identify personnel routinely exposed to hazardous levels of occupational noise

6 1. Coordinates with DIVO to identify and maintain rosters. 2. Train personnel during INDOC 3. Ensure annual training is completed 4. Schedule personnel in HCP for annual audiometric testing. Ensure that all test results have been entered into each individual’s health record. 5. Ensure all personnel that need retest are excluded from hazardous areas. 6

7  NAVMED 6260/2A or equivalent shall be used to label smaller, individual pieces of equipment or tools that produce hazardous noise.  Noise hazard warning signs and labels shall be annotated as to their circumstances or operations that create the noise hazardous condition when hearing protection is required  (e.g., when generator is operating).  The outside of doors are labeled for potential hazard 7

8  Hearting test  REFRENCE Baseline test-everyone in HCP gets, form used DD-2215, no exposure to workplace noise for 14 hours.  Booth used for testing is certified annually.  Monitoring Hearing test- annual for ppl in HCP.  Removal Hearing Tests. Individuals who are removed from hearing conservation will be given a hearing test to document auditory status at the time of removal from noise hazardous duties. Results of this test will be recorded on DD

9  Disposition Following Monitoring Hearing Tests. Pure tone air conduction monitoring hearing tests are designed to detect small changes in hearing and identify problems before the individual suffers hearing loss that interferes with verbal communications.  Re-established Reference Audiograms. Monitoring audiograms are compared to the baseline or reference audiogram to determine changes in hearing levels.  Termination Hearing Tests. Personnel shall receive a hearing test upon termination of service. 9

11  Potential eye hazardous operations: Cutting and welding, drilling, grinding, milling, chipping, sand blasting, or other dust and particle producing operations and pouring or handling molten metals or corrosive liquids and solids.  Protective Devices at minimum shall be approved by American National Standards Institute (ANSI), labeled “Z- 87”.  Potential eye hazardous operations: Cutting and welding, drilling, grinding, milling, chipping, sand blasting, or other dust and particle producing operations and pouring or handling molten metals or corrosive liquids and solids.  Protective Devices at minimum shall be approved by American National Standards Institute (ANSI), labeled “Z- 87”. 11

12  Safety Officer: Determine appropriate sight protective equipment, maintain list of areas requiring eye protection.  Division Officer: Ensure proper marking and labeling of hazardous areas, ensure personnel trained, and refer personnel with corrective eyewear to medical for prescription safety eyewear.  Safety Officer: Determine appropriate sight protective equipment, maintain list of areas requiring eye protection.  Division Officer: Ensure proper marking and labeling of hazardous areas, ensure personnel trained, and refer personnel with corrective eyewear to medical for prescription safety eyewear. 12

13  Determination of Eye-Hazardous Area: Identified by Industrial Hygiene Survey  Designation of Eye-Hazardous Area: Ship shall mark permanently installed equipment and processes with 3 inch deck stripping and a CAUTION sign. Deck around an immediate eye hazard shall be marked with 3 inch black and yellow striped or checkerboard tape. Mount signs directly above hazard, component, machinery, boundary bulkhead, or door. Sign shall read “CAUTION, Eye Protection Required in This Area”.  Determination of Eye-Hazardous Area: Identified by Industrial Hygiene Survey  Designation of Eye-Hazardous Area: Ship shall mark permanently installed equipment and processes with 3 inch deck stripping and a CAUTION sign.

14  DD 771, Eyewear Prescription Form used to order prescription safety glasses  Maintenance of Protective Eyewear: Before re-issue sanitize with hot soapy water and rinse. Followed by 10 minute immersion in disinfectant.  Emergency Eyewash Facilities : Capable of flushing eyes with potable water at a minimum flow rate of 0.4 gallons per minute for 15 continuous minutes. Maintenance is maintained through Planned Maintenance System (PMS). Water valves locked open and marked with a “W” fitting.  DD 771, Eyewear Prescription Form used to order prescription safety glasses  Maintenance of Protective Eyewear: Before re-issue sanitize with hot soapy water and rinse.

15  Eyewash Station Marking: Green sign with white lettering stating Emergency Eyewash Station  Eyewash Location: No more than 10 seconds or 100 travel feet from hazard.  Eyewash Station Marking: Green sign with white lettering stating Emergency Eyewash Station  Eyewash Location: No more than 10 seconds or 100 travel feet from hazard. 15

16  Safety Glasses/Spectacles, Chemical Goggles, Welding Goggles, Chipping Goggles, Welding Helmets, Face Shields. 16
