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

Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not ensure to each of his employees a place of employment which is free from recognized hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees: The employer does not ensure that yard trucks and dump trucks that are used by employees are maintained in a safe working condition. The employer violated this standard on or about January 24, 2005 when employees were exposed to the hazard of driving a yard truck with the backup alarm and horn not working and driving two dump trucks with no seat belts, no rear lights and one with no head lights, a broken windshield, and missing a side rear view mirror. To abate this violation the employer must ensure that all of its yard trucks and dump trucks are maintained in a safe working condition. Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable method to correct this hazard is to implement an effective inspection, repair and maintenance program. One that ensures that all motor vehicles and its parts and accessories are in a safe and proper operating condition. One that will ensure that when a motor vehicle or its parts and accessories are not in a safe and proper operating condition that it is taken out of service until repaired. DISCLAIMERS 1) You are not limited to the abatement methods suggested above. 2) The methods explained are general and may not be effective in all cases. 3) The employer is responsible for selecting and carrying out an appropriate method. Pursuant to 29 CFR 1903.19, certification with abatement documentation is required.
