Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 024E Hazard: REFINERY
29 CFR 1910.146(f)(12) Entry permit. The entry permit that documents compliance with this section and authorizes entry to a permit space shall identify: The communication procedures used by authorized entrants and attendants to maintain contact during the entry; A. The employer did not ensure the entry permit contained communication procedures used by authorized entrants and attendants to maintain contact during the entry. 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. Review of 7 randomly selected confined space entry permits showed communication procedures used by authorized entrants and attendants to maintain contact during the entry were not identified. By not identifying methods of communication, employees may become separated from attendants and be unable to contact them during an emergency, thus exposing employees to 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.
