2.5 MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS SCHEDULING.
A major concern of any hyperbaric facility is the
coordination of operations and maintenance.
Maintenance must be
planned so that it does not interfere with scheduled hyperbaric
operations or with periods when the facility is in a duty status
(e.g., standby chamber).
To ensure proper coordination of operations and maintenance,
commands shall develop and maintain cycle, quarterly, and weekly
maintenance schedules. The quarterly maintenance schedule will be
used to clearly show the planned operational periods.
of detail on these schedules is dependent upon the complexity of
the facility, but as a minimum shall list major systems, equipments
These schedules are addressed in further detail
in Chapter 3.
Two documents which will further assist in operations and
maintenance planning are:
Red Tag Log
Re-Entry Control (REC) Log
These two logs will provide for more detailed tracking of the
maintenance and operational status of systems, equipments and
components. Commands shall include a line item on all operating
procedures (OPs) verifying that the Red Tag Log and REC Log have
been reviewed and that no conditions exist which would interfere
with scheduled system operations. Details of red tag and reentry
control procedures are addressed in Chapter 4 and Appendix C.
General. Modernman-rated hyperbaric facilities and
the associated support systems are designed to be fail-safe (Note:
Some older existing facilities do not meet this design criteria).
In cases where a system malfunction would endanger the lives of the
Pressure Vessel for Human Occupancy (PVHO) occupants or divers, a
stand-by system, either active or passive, is incorporated in the
