Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 001 Hazard: LIFTING

Waste Management, Inc. was previously cited for a violation of this Occupational Safety and Health standard, which was contained in OSHA inspection #121985899, Citation 1, Item 1, issued June 25, 1998, with respect to a workplace in Moraine, Ohio. 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 fall and struck by hazards: a.On May 3, 2000, a temporary employee was fatally injured when he fell from a recycle truck. The employer had not provided training for temporary employees regarding safe procedures to follow when riding on modified trucks, and temporary employees had not been trained on the employer's health and safety rules, safe work practices, refuse collection procedures, use of personal protective equipment, and proper lifting procedures. Among other feasible and acceptable methods to correct this hazard would be to implement a training program to thoroughly train temporary employees on safety procedures and safe work practices to be followed while collecting refuse. Also, develop safety procedures to follow when operating trucks which had been modified, and post a warning sign to not ride on the step when the truck is moving. ABATEMENT CERTIFICATION IS NOT REQUIRED.TION
