Whenever and as soon as a Compliance Safety and Health Officer concludes on the basis of an inspection that conditions or practices exist
in any place of employment which could reasonably be expected to cause death or serious physical harm immediately or before the imminence of such
danger can be eliminated through the enforcement procedures otherwise provided by the Act, he shall inform the affected employees and employers of the
danger and that he is recommending a civil action to restrain such conditions or practices and for other appropriate relief in accordance with the
provisions of section 13(a) of the Act. Appropriate citations and notices of proposed penalties may be issued with respect to an imminent danger even
though, after being informed of such danger by the Compliance Safety and Health Officer, the employer immediately eliminates the imminence of the
danger and initiates steps to abate such danger.
