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 were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm in that employees were exposed to struck by hazards from collapsed sections of overhead, indoor dust collection system ductwork resulting from the condition of the overloading of interior duct work systems: (a) On or about August 6, 2017 the employer had not ensured that employees were protected from the hazards associated with overloaded sections of overhead ductwork associated with the conveyance of friction material particulates to an outdoor dust collection system. Duct conveyance velocities were inadequate and did not prevent accumulation of particulates within the duct work itself. This condition resulted in the mass accumulation of particulates that, along with the weight of the ductwork itself, exceeded the strength of the ductwork's support system and resulted in the collapse of a section of duct work within the facility.
