126.96.36.199 Work Injuries and Mishap Reports. Report injuries, even minor ones, to your
immediate supervisor in accordance with OPNAVINST 5100.23. Additionally, every mishap
involving personnel injury, property damage, or near misses should be investigated to determine
the cause and the corrective action needed to prevent recurrence. Base safety personnel conduct
investigations. Local safety staff should be notified of all mishaps that involve personnel injuries
or property damage. Mishaps should be investigated and reported through safety channels.
188.8.131.52 Rescue Operations. Rescue operations will vary with the individual situation. A
good rule of thumb is never to touch any live parts or any person in contact with live parts
without using an insulating medium. Always wear personal protective equipment. Before
rendering any assistance, the rescuer should make an emergency call to the dispatcher on the two-
way radio or the nearest telephone. He/she should quickly pinpoint the location of the mishap,
describe the problem, and the assistance required.
Lockout/Tagout/Tryout of Hazardous Energy Sources. OSHA standard 29
CFR 1910.269(d), Hazardous Energy Control (Lockout/Tagout/Tryout), and (m), De-energizing
Lines and Equipment for Employee Protection require that the following safety precautions be
observed when working on lines and equipment rated over 50 volts. Sections of lines or
equipment to be de-energized should be clearly identified and isolated from all energy sources.
The designated employee should ensure that all switches and disconnecting devices have been de-
energized, opened, tagged, and locked out to indicate people are working on the circuit
downstream. After all disconnecting devices have been opened, tagged, and locked out, visual
inspection or tests with a voltmeter or other instrument should be conducted to insure that the
equipment or lines are de-energized. Finally, protective grounds should be placed on the
disconnected lines or equipment to be worked on in accordance with 29 CFR 1910.269(n),
Grounding for Protection of Employees. In summary, all Naval activities are required implement
