Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 007A Hazard: REFINERY
29 CFR 1910.119(d)(2)(i)[A] Information concerning the technology of the process shall include at least the following: A block flow diagram or simplified process flow diagram. A. The employer did not ensure that a block flow diagram or simplified process flow diagram was developed for the High Pressure Sodium Hydrosulfide (NaSH) system. 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 as 03-PR-PFD-0002 included an area for the High Pressure NaSH unit, but no detail was provided as to what equipment was present to accompany the process description. Critical basic documents play a vital role in assessing and overseeing process activities. By not maintaining complete block flow diagrams, employees may not be able to locate refining equipment in the field. In the event of an emergency, while searching for equipment in the field, employees may be exposed to hazardous conditions that can cause serious injury or death. This may be a system-wide occurrence that requires evaluation of all block flow and simplified process flow diagrams for the facility.
