Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001 Hazard:

OSH ACT of 1970 Section (5)(a)(1): Respondent (a) did not ground the ductwork for the Pangborn dust collection system to prevent any static electricity generated by the movement of phenol-formaldehyde resin dust over the metal ducts from becoming a potential ignition source; (b) did not ground the Pangborn dust collector itself to prevent the generation of static electricity from becoming a potential ignition source; (c) did not control sparks generated by the metal chucks of the lathe from striking the metal clamps that secured the phenol-formaldehyde resin balls during shaping, which could travel into the Pangborn dust collection system and ignite the dust; (d) ductwork for the Pangborn dust collection system had 90 degree angle bends where phenol-formaldehyde dust could accumulate and potentially ignite; (e) supported the ducting next to the dust collector with bricks loosely stacked, resulting in breaks in the ductwork, leading to the potential release of phenol-formaldehyde resin dust; and (f) did not provide explosion relief venting for the Pangborn dust collection system to prevent a fire in the collector from traveling back into the building through the duct work.
