The task of conducting training for the position of Bread Mixer Operator, which includes the operation of equipment including the bread mixer and the dough trough hoist, was assigned to non-management bread mixer operators with no supervisory oversight. The training did not include safe operating procedures, as evidenced by operators instructing employees to ride the dough trough hoist to access the dough sponge chute. Abatement certification is required for this violation (using the CERTIFICATION OF CORRECTIVE ACTION WORKSHEET), and in addition, documentation demonstrating that abatement is complete must be included with your certification. This documentation may include, but is not limited to, evidence of the purchase or repair of the equipment, photographic or video evidence of abatement, or other written records.
