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 deficiencies in overhead hoists: (a) Welding Jig Area; The following deficiencies were noted on the Abell Howe jib hoist.

(3) On or about September 24, 2004, a bundle of forty foot long steel beams was not properly secured as they were being lifted and the carrier that the load was in shifted.

This condition existed in departments such as the Tie Down Department and Ceiling Build Area.
