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: a) Warehouse - Sufficient safe clearances did not exist in floor level storage rack bays where employees operate Crown PC 4500 pallet trucks to make case picks. The first horizontal rack beam in aisle 2M had a height of 59 inches from the floor to the bottom of the beam. The Crown pallet truck had an open operator compartment with sides that extended 37 inches above the floor, which would allow the horizontal rack beam to enter the operator's compartment, pinning the operator between the beam and the backrest of the material handling equipment, as happened on or about October 11, 2018. Abatement certification and documentation required within 10 days after abatement date. The certification shall include a statement that abatement is complete, the date and method of abatement, and state that employees and their representatives were informed of this abatement. Abatement documentation shall include documents demonstrating that abatement is complete, such as evidence of the purchase or repair of equipment, photographic or video evidence of abatement or other written records.
