This handbook contains basic criteria to design military
installation pest management facilities and it includes some operational
information to justify certain design features. A facility so designed will
support operations and provide for safe storage of pesticides, safeguard the
health and safety of employees, prevent environmental contamination, contain
spillage and be secure against theft and vandalism.
Application. The requirements in this handbook are presented as
essential (mandated by federal regulation, consensus standard or justified by
good practice) and recommended (in the interests of safety and health,
cost-effective operations, efficiency or unique operations). In this
handbook, the terms "shall" and "should" equate to essential and recommended
requirements, respectively. No deviation from essential criteria are
permitted unless approved by NAVFACENGCOM Code 1634.
Operational Notes. Many operational procedures apply to pest
management functions that influence the design of pest management facilities.
These are identified in applicable sections as Operational Notes. Numerous
and all information currently available on pest management facilities is
provided or referenced in this publication.
Facility Plates. Facility plates for pest management facilities
are contained in this handbook. These include a functional relationship
diagram, facility floor plans, door sill details, exhaust hood detail and
Criteria Manuals. See references listed at the end of this
handbook for criteria related to pest management facilities, but appearing
elsewhere in the Criteria manual series.
Planning Criteria. Planning criteria for pest management
facilities covered by this handbook are contained in NAVFAC P-80, Facility
Planning Factor Criteria for Navy and Marine Corps Shore Installations, Navy
Category Code and Title (219-10 Public Works Shop).
Pesticide Storage Criteria. References to Title 40 Code of Federal
Regulations (CFR), Part 165 (40 CFR 165) are for background information unless
otherwise stated. The 40 CFR 165 design-related criteria and procedures are
primarily for pesticides and containers whose uncontrolled release into the
environment would cause unreasonable adverse effects on the environment, and
for those labelled with the signal words DANGER-POISON or WARNING. All CFR
criteria and procedures may not apply; states cannot regulate DoD facilities
