29 CFR 1910.38(c)(3) Minimum elements of an emergency action plan. An emergency action plan must include at a minimum: Procedures to be followed by employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate; A. The employer did not clearly identify, in their Emergency Action Plan, procedures to be followed by employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate. This violation was identified during inspections of the facility from November 2009 to March 2010, Silver Eagle Refining Inc., 2355 South 1100 West, Woods Cross, UT, 84087. Procedures provided as the "Emergency Response Action Plan", "Facility Response Plan", and "Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan", did not provide specific details and procedures instructing employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate. By not developing and implementing procedures for those who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate, employees were deprived of critical guidance during emergency situations which can result in employees being exposed to fires, explosions, and/or chemical releases causing serious injury or death. This may be a system- wide concern that would require the evaluation of all policies and procedures throughout the facility.
