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

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 likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to the hazards of being struck-by components of an exploding above-ground oil storage tank. At the Sandblasting Building, on or about 05/31/00, one employee was exposed to the hazards of being struck-by components of an exploding above-ground oil storage tank due to excessive internal pressure being introduced through compressed air. One method of abatement to correct this apparent hazard is to regulate the flow of compressed air into each tank so that an internal pressure of no more than 2.5 PSIG is attained as required by UL-142, paragraph 39.2.1. DISCLAIMER: a) The employer is not limited to the abatement method(s) suggested by OSHA. b) The employer is responsible for selecting and implementing an effective abatement method. ***THIS ITEM REQUIRES A WRITTEN CERTIFICATION OF ABATEMENT***
