Text For Citation: 02 Item/Group: 002 Hazard:

OSH ACT of 1970 Section (5)(a)(1): The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that an employee was working from an order picker without fall protection. On or about October 30, 2014, an employee was exposed to fall hazards while working from an order picker with a body belt and lanyard. The length of the lanyard allowed the worker to be exposed to fall hazards. The excessive length of the lanyard did not restrict travel by the operator past the platform edge. AMONG OTHER METHODS, ONE FEASIBLE AND ACCEPTABLE ABATEMENT METHOD TO CORRECT THESE HAZARDS IS: To provide the employee with an appropriately sized harness and lanyard. Train the employee in the correct way to don and doff the harness. Train the employee in how to inspect the harness and lanyard. Require that the employee inspect the harness and lanyard each day that it is used. Insure that the harness and/or lanyard is replaced when damaged.
