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

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: (a) Farmington, PA, 1001 Lafayette Drive, ski slope; The operator's manual for the utility cart manufactured by Club Car Inc., Carryall-1, serial number FG9534454874 was not used to develop standard operating procedures and for worker training in the safe operation of the utility vehicle nor was a preventative maintenance program developed as evidenced by a broken headlight, worn tires, and missing operating instruction signs from the steering column.
