Tim: Is there any regulatory guidance at any level saying No weapons into an ASP? To me guards potentially make sense b/c they are getting extra weapons training as per AR 190-14 but accidents do occur. That's why they're called accidents. I just don't want an accident to become a catastrophe.

USAEHA TG 146.pdfDwg 13064136.pdf

The attached documents will clarify some misinformation circulated regarding wood preservative treatments.

Wood treated with pentachlorophenol is indicated by a "P" marking (Ref USAEHA TG 146 attached).  Pentachlorophenol is no longer used as a wood preservative and has been replaced by alternatives such as Copper-8-quinolinolate, zinc naphthenate, and copper naphthenate.

IAW Dwg 13064136 these alternative treatments that are currently authorized can be recognized by the following markings -

  • PA - Copper-8-quinolinolate
  • PB -  Zinc naphthenate
  • PC - Copper naphthenate

A PS Magazine Article (PS 677) as well as the DA Pam 742-1 22Nov2016 erroneously indicate that PA, PB & PC are  pentachlorophenol treated.

​I am trying to find out if their are any courses out there that cover blocking and bracing of ammunition shipments.  While I was in the Army the B&B crew was also the R&U, when I worked at SDDC ports it was union carpenter labor, and now I have a different crew, but they have no formal training. 

The DTR says all personnel involved in the handling, repackagiing, and loading operations have to be properly trained and recommends (https://training.dla.mil/HAZMAT) but I can never get that link to work.

I have been to AMMO-62 and have taken AMMO-51, and done the  Defense Basic Preservation and Packing (online) from DAC.....none of these cover blocking and bracing.  Any suggestions where I can look for this training?  Is there really a formal requirement..or just suggestions and recommendations?

 

Thanx,

Ted

​Is the Explosives Safety Mishap Analysis Module still working?  I previously had access.  However, the link to the ESMAM does not populate for me.

​Folks,

I am looking for a cross reference of DODICs that require humidity Indicators, and the HI part numbers/NSN's.
