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

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: (a).Worksite located at 632 Old Mill Road, Hollister, Missouri- On or about January 21, 2006, an employee who was working on an a.m. radio tower was killed as a result of a fall when a bulldozer, operating near one of the anchors for the tower, became entangled with the tail of the guy wire, thus, causing the grip of the guy wire to pull out and the tower to fall. Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable method to correct this hazard is to establish and enforce a written work rule or policy that no equipment or employees, other than those performing the tower erection, be allowed to work in the vicinity of the tower that is being erected. This would include work being performed around guy wires and anchorages. Note-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. The 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.
