Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 006B Hazard: REFINERY
29 CFR 1910.119(c)(2) Employers shall consult with employees and their representatives on the conduct and development of process hazards analyses and on the development of the other elements of process safety management in this standard. A. The employer did not ensure employees and their representatives were consulted on the conduct and development of process hazards analyses. 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. Documents provided by the employer did not demonstrate that they consulted with employees or their representatives on the conduct and development of Compliance audits, Pre-startup Safety Reviews (PSSR), or when to conduct refresher training. By not ensuring employees and their representatives are consulted in the development of process safety management elements, the employer could be deprived of critical front line information vital to developing comprehensive process hazard analysis. Consulting employees can lead to the identification of site specific hazards which if left uncontrolled, can expose employees to fires, explosions, and/or chemical releases that can cause serious injury or death. This occurrence may be system wide and would require evaluation in all applicable areas of the refinery.
