Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001 Hazard:
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. The vehicle lifts at the Yale facility and at the Daytona facility are not repaired and maintained in good working condition and free from hazards. Some of the lifts were leaking fluids. When the lift control stations stop working the employees are required to operate the lifts manually by removing a cover from the control box. The Rotary Lifts must be very carefully lowered so that it doesn't get too off-balance and the bus on it falls off. The lifts make creaking and stress related noises while in use. They do not lower on all four sides simultaneously and get off-balance.
