Maintenance and repair of electronic equipment ashore
A command supported electrical safety program shall be established. Activities are required to comply with Material Maintenance Management (3M) provisions, if applicable. Additionally, classroom spaces which are directly related to fleet training evolutions must comply with applicable provisions of OPNAVINST 5100.19 (series) and NSTM chapter 300, as applicable.
All other spaces and non-training evolutions must comply with
29 CFR 1910 Subpart S and other related nationally recognized electrical standards, as adopted by
OPNAVINST 5100.23 (series).
The maintenance and repair of electronic equipment ashore is governed by SPAWARINST 5100.9 (series). Potential regulatory conflicts that may arise within the fleet-simulated training environments are to be resolved in favor of NAVSHIP/NAVSEA or
OPNAVINST 5100.19 (series) as applicable.
Designed to minimize electrical, fire and shock hazards
Electrical receptacles that have poor tension increases resistance which eventually results in an electrical arc or fire.
Ensure ALL electrical plugs have no exposed wiring present during routine inspections...
A vigorous receptacle testing program shall be conducted. Each receptacle shall be tested at least annually. Defective receptacles shall be replaced.
The Following slides describe what shall be verified:
The retention force of each connection (hot, neutral and grounding) of each receptacle (except locking type receptacles) shall not be LESS than four ounces.
A record shall be maintained for electrical inspections. Each receptacle need NOT be listed. Areas specific to the inspection should be noted (e.g., Building 1405, 2ud deck). List discrepancies and abatement action.
A program of regular (at least annually) inspection of electrical equipment including receptacles to detect and correct unsafe conditions in all buildings, barracks, etc.
Equipment will be checked for grounding, loose wiring, frayed cords, intact grounding pin and equipment damage. Electrical equipment used around swimming pools shall be checked daily prior to use.
Defective electric cords, lighting fixtures, appliances, receptacles and switches shall be reported immediately to the BMS and the command Safety Representative for corrective action.
All electrical apparatus must bear the label of/or be listed by a testing/listing facility (i.e., Underwriters Laboratories or Factory Mutual).
Locally prepared extension cords made with handy/junction boxes with knockouts are prohibited. Multi-receptacle adapters (octopus) are prohibited.
An electrical tool issue, testing and repair program shall be instituted. Procedures governing tool control, safety and use should be promulgated at the command level.
Outdoors where there is direct grade level access (located not more than 6 feet 6 inches above the ground) to the receptacles.
In bathrooms, kitchens and deep sink rooms where receptacles are within six feet of sinks.
A record will be maintained and a durable tag affixed to floor buffers certifying serviceability and date of last inspection. For all other equipment, either a tag or a system of colored tape attached to the cord may be used.
