Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish to each of his employees 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 employees were exposed to the hazard of a crane failure: a) Leitner-Poma of America, Inc. & 2510 Foresight Cr., Grand Junction, CO: On or before 6/18/02, the employer did not ensure that cranes exhibiting deficiencies which could compromise their safe function were removed from service, as required by ASME B30.5-1994, The American Society of Mechanical Engineers - An American National Standard - Safety Standard for Cableways, Cranes, Derricks, Hoists, Hooks, Jacks, and Slings - Mobile and Locomotive Cranes, paragraph 5- 2.3.2, until such deficiencies were repaired. The Grove RT60S (Serial# 19376) truck crane exhibited deficiencies such as, but not limited to, intermittently functioning gauges and anti-two blocking device, a sticking boom angle indicator, and cracked welds on the outriggers. Abatement Note: One feasible abatement method is to follow the requirements of ASME B30.5 and to remove the crane from service until the deficiencies are corrected.
