Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 002 Hazard: NMAC Section 50-9-5(A), NMSA 1978 (New Mexico Occupational Health and Safety Act): 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. Employees working around the hoisting equipment used to lift a flange off of a well head were exposed to the hazard of being struck by falling equipment due to a failure with the hoisting system. The system was not designed and tested to ensure that it would safely lift the load. American Petroleum Institute (API) Specification 8c, Drilling and Production Hoisting Equipment, Paragraph 4.1 states that hoisting equipment shall be designed, manufactured and tested so that it is in every respect fit for its intended purpose. The equipment shall safely transfer the load for which it is intended. The equipment shall be designed for simple and safe operation.
