Technical Guidance and References

This page contains official guidance (mainly in the form of OPNAV Instructions and OSHA regulations) for a series of specific areas. OPNAV links take you to the Department of the Navy Instructions page, where you can download the document (the link tells you the section, but doesn’t take you directly there).

Topics include:

  • Electrical Safety
  • Hazmat
  • Confined Spaces
  • Trip/Fall Protection
  • Sight Conservation
  • Equipment/Machinery
  • Hearing Conservation
  • Lockout/Tagout
  • Radiation
  • Respiratory
  • Non-Ionizing Radiation/Radio Frequency
  • Aircraft
  • Platforms/Manlifts

There is often confusion about whether OSHA regulations apply to the military. According to DODI 6055.01, “DoD Components shall comply with the standards promulgated by OSHA… in all nonmilitary-unique DoD operations and workplaces, regardless of whether work is performed by military or civilian personnel. The DoD Components may develop and apply standards that are alternate or supplemental to such OSHA standards.” Flight and flight-related aviation operations aren’t governed by OSHA, nor (in general) are ship and submarine ops. However, MSC ships are not military unique.
