and materials meets the requirements in the plans and specifications. The responsibility for quality construction rests with the crew leader and the chain of command. The quality control division of the operations department is responsible for conducting tests and inspections to ensure compliance with the plans and specifications.
The crew leader must develop and implement an aggressive quality control (QC) plan. The crew leader must plan quality into the project and avoid discrepancies. The development of the QC plan can be broken down into the following steps:
Establish quality measures by reviewing the plans and specifications and identifying the quality criteria with which you must comply. The project QC plan should include a list of checks, inspections, and tests. You also need to address special requirements, such as training, hazardous material, or personnel safety pro-tection. See figures 1-13 and 1-14 for examples of QC planning guides.
Select construction methods that are safe and of high quality. You need to determine construction methods very early in the planning stage of the project, as they impact on equipment, tools, material, labor, training, and safety requirements. Discuss construc- tion methods with your crew, supervisors, and the QC inspector.
Identify required training and equipment If specialized training or qualifications are needed, you must make sure they are met. Use the resources that are available to you, and remember that projects are intended as training for your people. Teaching your crew the proper construction methods and techniques should be high on your priority list.
Ensure personnel awareness. To perform the work satisfactorily, the crew must understand the quality measures. Before beginning work on an activity, you should brief all crew members about critical measurements, inspection items, potential problems, and each member's responsibility for quality.
Evaluation of work completed is recorded on a Daily QC Inspector's Report shown in figure 1-15. The purpose of this report is to document that the required checks, tests, and inspections were accomplished, and work is being performed according to specifications.
The ROICC is responsible for inspection and surveillance on NCF projects and for reviewing daily QC reports. The ROICC office also has to approve any recommended field changes or customer-requested changes. No field changes can be made without a request being forwarded through the QC department.
As a second class petty officer and crew leader, you should be aware of the Navy's Hazardous Material (HM) and Hazardous Waste (HW) programs.Continue Reading
