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 to employees in that employees were exposed to struck-by hazards. a. On or about March 10, 2020, at the above addressed site, a host employee and contract employees were removing a hub on the drive-end of a locomotive generator/alternator (Kato Engineering Model number AA2907300) using an Enerpac, model number RR-1006, double action hydraulic cylinder which was connected to a Enerpac, model number PER-2222, 10,000 pound hydraulic pump. The coupler on the return side of the hydraulic cylinder was not provided with a hose, nor was there a relief valve or pressure gauge installed on the system. Employees and contract employees were thereby exposed to struck-by hazards due to catastrophic failure of the components. An employee was struck by and fatally injured by a failure of the system.
