GENERAL STOWAGE REQUIREMENTS
Proper stowage of hazardous material is essential to
ship and personnel safety. The supply department and
individual work center personnel are responsible for
proper stowage of hazardous material in areas under
their cognizance. For answers to your questions
concerning hazardous material stowage, consult your
supervisor, supply officer, or your hazardous
material/hazardous waste coordinator.
Hazardous materials aboard ship are typically
packaged in cases or allotments of individual
Do not store hazardous materials in heat producing
areas, or near heat-producing items. Shield hazardous
material stored on the weather deck or in exposed areas
from direct sunlight.
Temporary stowage of hazardous material in work
spaces should be limited to the quantity necessary for
one work shift.
We recommend that you get a copy of Naval Ships
Technical Manual, Chapter 670, Stowage, Handling,
and Disposal of General Use Consumables, and read
sections 3 through 6 to enhance your knowledge on
stowage of the material covered in this chapter.
