Always visually inspect portable electrical
equipment before you use it. Look for damaged
plugs, frayed cords, broken or missing ground
connections, and the like.
Never use portable electrical equipment if there
is reason to believe it might be defective. Have
it tested by authorized personnel.
Make no repairs.
Do not use any personal portable electrical
equipment aboard ship unless it has been
inspected and approved.
Always report any shock you receive from
electrical equipment, regardless of how slight.
Promoting safety within the electronics division or
on the ship in general will require that you, the ET1 and
ETC, become safety conscious to the point that you
automatically consider safety in every job or operation.
Through the use of safety reminders and by your
personal example, you will pass safety consciousness on
to other personnel. You must be thoroughly familiar with
OPNAVINST 5100.19, Navy Safety precautions for
Forces Aflat, and Naval Ships Technical Manual,
chapter 400. These are the primary sources of safety
rules and regulations. Good information concerning
safety is also given in the EIMB, General NAVSEA

Security program Regulation, OPNAVINST 5510.1.
Following its guidance should be second nature to you.
SPACE UPKEEP AND CLEANLINESS
Upkeep and cleanliness of spaces is a very
important in the electronics division. The safety and
operation of equipment depend on correct and routine
upkeep. As a senior petty officer, you should ensure that
all spaces are always in excellent shape, with tools
properly stowed and equipment properly mounted and
covered. The upkeep of spaces should be a daily routine
regardless of priorities. Sometimes equipment repairs or
other unforeseen events dictate maintenance; however,
space upkeep and cleanliness should not be forgotten.
Dangers of fire, damage control, safety of
personnel, the possibility of equipment filters clogging
up because of dirty space, and many other reasons
dictate that your spaces should be kept up and should
