Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 012 Hazard: REFINERY
29 CFR 1910.119(f)(1)(iii)[E] 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: Any special or unique hazards. A. At the time of the inspection, November 2009 through March 2010, Silver Eagle Refining Inc., 2355 South 1100 West, Woods Cross, UT, 84087, during review of the "Hot Work Permit Standard Policies and Procedures," clear instructions were not provided detailing the removal or isolation of combustible materials. Policy 6.8, Hot Work Permit, Dated 8/2004 provides guidance on coordinating hot work with the opening of process equipment, but does not detail how and when combustibles should be removed or relocated. By not specifying how and when combustibles should be removed or relocated, employees could potentially perform hot work next to combustibles causing a fire. In the event of a fire, employees can be exposed to hazardous situations that can cause serious injury or death. This may be a system-wide occurrence that requires evaluation of all hot work policies, procedures, and practices throughout the facility.
