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 and suspended load hazards while a gantry crane that was in disrepair was operated: (a) Mountain Reload LLC., at 1001 W 52nd Avenue, Denver, CO: On and preceding 6/10/2020, Mountain Reload LLC. 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 and suspended load hazards while a gantry crane that was in disrepair was operated. Employees unloaded commodities, including steel rebar, from rail cars. An employee operated a MiJack Products Inc model MJ40 rubber tire gantry crane to transport commodities from rail cars to temporary storage alongside the rail line. Employees assisted in the transfer of commodities from the rail car to the ground. The documented disrepair of the crane included nonfunctioning horn and beacons, worn hoist cables with broken strands, broken safety latches on the hooks, a drive chain worn past the maximum wear point, and a steering hydraulic cylinder needing replacement. The employer did not maintain safety equipment nor critical equipment of the MiJack MJ40 rubber tire gantry crane. This condition exposed employees assisting the crane operator to struck-by and suspended load hazards. Abatement Note: Among other methods, feasible abatement methods include: 1. Abatement may be achieved through compliance with American National Standard Institute (ANSI) B30.24 "Container Cranes".
