Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 024C Hazard: REFINERY
29 CFR 1910.146(f)(10) Entry permit. The entry permit that documents compliance with this section and authorizes entry to a permit space shall identify: The results of initial and periodic tests performed under paragraph (d)(5) of this section, accompanied by the names or initials of the testers and by an indication of when the tests were performed; A. The employer did not ensure the entry permit contained a completed list of initial and periodic tests performed under paragraph (d)(5) of this section. 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 confined space entry permits, documents provided showed initial testing is performed; however there is nothing documented that indicates periodic testing is performed. Seven randomly reviewed confined space entry permits provided as MDDW 1-UOSH-211, listed only the initial tests. By not following confined space requirements, employees may not be aware of air testing results and enter a confined space with a hazardous atmosphere, resulting in serious injury or death. This may be a system-wide occurrence which would require the evaluation of all confined space permits, policies, and procedures throughout the facility.
