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

Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: 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 crushing injuries from being struck by a forty foot intermodal container weighing approximately eight tons: OR IN THE ALTERNATIVE 29 CFR 1918.33(a): Employees were permitted to pass fore and aft over or around the deck loads. Employees were permitted to pass over or around the deck loads and in the zone of danger when there was not a safe route of passage. This violation was most recently observed January 19, 2012 at the Port of Long Beach, Berth J245, Vessel Cosco Japan, Bay 34 where an employee was fatally injured during container discharge operations. The employee was approximately twelve feet from intermodal containers stacked six high when one was dislodged from the top of the stack, crushing the employee below. AMONG OTHER METHODS, FEASIBLE AND ACCEPTABLE METHODS TO CORRECT THE HAZARD WOULD BE TO FOLLOW THE PROVISIONS OF: ASME - ANSI B30.4-1981, Section 4-3.2.3 (c)(2) which states: During hoisting, care shall be taken that: Load does not contact any obstructions. ASME - ANSI B30.4-1981, Section 4-3.2.3(f) which states: The operator should not carry loads over people. Pacific Coast Marine Safety Code 2008 Revision, Section 15, Rule 1513 which states: Employees shall not walk or work in the aisles adjacent to a container bay being loaded or discharged, except when the uppermost tier is being worked.
