Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 003 Hazard: LIFTING

Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish a place of employment which was free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to struck by hazards: (a)HS Testing, Inc. at Rig 721, Weld CR 59 and 62, Gill, CO 80624: On or before 11/17/06, the employer did not ensure that the base mounted drum hoist was not loaded beyond the rated line pull. The hoist on the International Truck #1HTAA19E9CHA12780 was pull tested to 4,000 pounds, while the sheaves used with the line were stamped with a safe working load limit of 3,000 pounds. In addition, this hoist had no gauges or other devices to warn the operator each time a load approaching the maximum load was being handled. Condition exposed employees to struck by hazards. Abatement Note: Abatement certification and documentation are required for this item (See enclosed "Sample Abatement-Certification Letter"). Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable abatement method can be found in the American National Standards Institute B30.7-2001 Section 7-3.2.1, which provides, "No hoist shall be loaded beyond the rated line pull, except when testing;" and Section 7-3.2.2, which provides, "The operator should be notified each time a load approaching the maximum rated load is to be handled so that the brakes can be tested by lifting the load a few inches and applying the brakes."
