Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 011A Hazard: REFINERY
29 CFR 1910.119(f)(1)(i)[A] The employer shall develop and implement written operating procedures that provide clear instructions for safely conducting activities involved in each covered process consistent with the process safety information and shall address at least the following elements: Initial operations; A. The employer did not ensure that written procedures provided clear instructions for initial operations. 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. During review of the Modified #1 Crude Unit Startup Procedure, it was identified that this procedure was not complete and does not cover all steps necessary for bringing the unit up during initial operating conditions. The procedure does not discuss initial readings, expected ranges, initial temperatures or pressures. The procedure ends with nitrogen purge of the unit and no steps for introduction of feed into the unit are provided. By not providing clear instructions for safely conducting activities, potential for confusion exists which can result in error, exposing employees to hazardous situations that can cause serious injury or death. This may be a system-wide occurrence that requires evaluation of all operating procedures throughout the facility.
