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

OSH ACT of 1970 Section (5)(a)(1): The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which was free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to crushing hazards while using a personnel lift: On or about July 14, 2017, while using the #1 LS Series Southworth lift in the Alignment Pit, an employee sustained crush injuries to the hand after the lift passed its height limits and smashed her hand between the guardrail and a metal piece of the pit support structure. Among others, one feasible means of abatement is to ensure limit switches are installed and functional on each of the alignment pit lifts. In addition, follow ANSI MH29.1: 2012 - Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissor Lifts and provide required training on hazards to observe prior to use of the lifts.
