1

Explain EYE PROTECTION and requirements

All personnel entering eye-hazardous area must wear probes or eye protective devices

2

Deliberate Level

Situations when is:

-Ample time to apply RM process in planning evolution

3

Time Critical Level

Situations when is:

-Little or no time to make a plan

4

RISK ASSESMENT

The process of detecting hazards and assessing associated risks

5

Give examples of PPE's

1. Head protection
2. Hearing protection
3. Eye protection
4. Foot Protection

6

In-depth Level

Situations when:

-Time is not a limiting factor

-Detailed risk assessment

7

What are the five step processes of RM?

1. Identifying Hazards
2. Assessing Hazards
3. Making risk decisions
4. Implementing controls
5. Supervising

Acronym: IAMIS

8

Explain IDENTIFYING HAZARDS

Haz Ident. is Important because it can cause:

PROPERTY DAMAGE
INJURY OR DEATH to personnel

9

Explain IMPLEMENT CONTROLS

-Measures that can be used to eliminate hazards or reduce the degree of risk

-CLEAR, SIMPLE execution orders to be understood at ALL LEVELS

10

Explain FOOT PROTECTION and requirements

All marine personnel exposed to foot hazardous areas shall be furnished safety footwear at government expense. Hazardous areas includes: constructions, maintenance, transportation, weapons, supply, vehicle maintenance, etc.

11

Explain the purpose and information contained in MSDS

Is a technical bulletin containing information about materials, such as the:
-composition
-chemical and physical characteristics
-health and safety hazards
-safe handling and use
Supervisors are required to provide training to everyone that uses the material before they use it

12

Explain ASSES HAZARDS

For each hazard identified determine the DEGREE OF RISK in terms of PROBABILITY and SEVERITY

13

Explain ACCEPT NO UNNECESSARY RISK

Any risk that if taken, will not contribute meaningfully to mission accomplishment or will needlessly jeopardize personnel or material.

14

Discuss the term RM and the concept of the RM process

RM
-One of the BEST MEANS available to eliminate needless loss of LIFE, INJURY, MATERIAL DAMAGE

RM PROCESS
-Minimizing RISK to and ACCEPTABLE LEVEL commensurate with mission accomplishment.

15

Explain HEAD PROTECTION and requirements

Safety helmets protect against IMPACT , PENETRATION, AND ELECTRIC SHOCK. Any personnel entering head hazardous areas shall wear appropriate head protection

16

Explain ACCEPT RISK WHEN BENEFITS OUTWEIGHS THE COST

Manage risk so mission can be accomplished with the minimum amount of loss

17

Explain "Make risk decisions at the right level"

-Anyone can make risk decision

-Ultimate RM decision (reject, accept,eliminate) will be made by the LEADER directly in charge of the operation

-If Leader unable to mitigate, take it to SNCO/Officer

-If SNCO unable, elevate to Commander

18

Explain ANTICIPATE AND MANAGE RISK BY PLANNING

Integrating RM as early as possible, provides the greatest opportunity to make well-informed risk decisions and implement effective risk controls.

19

RISK

An expression of possible loss in terms of probability and severity

20

HAZARDOUS MATERIAL

Any material that because of its QUANTITY, CONCENTRATION, OR PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL characteristics, may pose hazard to HUMAN HEALTH or ENVIRONMENT, if INCORRECTLY used, PURPOSEFULLY released, or ACCIDENTALLY spilled

21

HAZARD

A condition that can cause injury or death, property damage or mission degradation

22

What are the four principles of RM

1. Accept risk when benefits outweigh the cost
2. Accept no unnecessary risk
3. Anticipate and manage risk by planning
4. Make risk decisions at the right level

23

Three Levels of RM

1. In-depth Level
2. Deliberate level
3. Time Critical Level

24

HAZARDOUS WASTE

A discarded material which meets the definition of hazardous material and is designated as waste by Environmental Protection Agency or State Authority

25

Explain SUPERVISE

Conduct follow-up evaluations of the controls to make sure they remain in place and have the desired effect

26

Explain MAKE RISK DECISIONS

Accomplished in TWO sub steps

-IDENTIFY and ASSESS risk control options
-Make RISK DECISION (Reject, Avoid, Delay, Transfer Compensate)

27

Explain HEARING PROTECTION and requirements

Hearing protection shall be worn when noise levels is:
-84 dBA sound level or greater
-140 dB sound pressure level or greater

When sound level is 104 dBA or greater double hearing protection must be worn. Inserts and circumference hearing protective devices
