obligations and liabilities for the safety and health of their employees.

b. The purpose of this Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) is to establish safety and health
requirements for all project maintenance activities, ensure that contractor personnel comply with
applicable safety and health requirements, and partner with PHNSY&IMF to ensure safe project
sites throughout the availabilities.

PHNSY&IMF employees. Such monitoring will not replace any industrial hygiene sampling the
contractor is required to perform according to the contract, nor will Navy monitoring results be
used to determine potential exposures to contract personnel.
