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 struck-by hazards: a.At this inspection site, on December 20, 2006, and at other times prior thereto, the guylines were improperly installed for holding the blowout preventers upright, and included the following visible deficiencies: 1.The Crosby clips used to create an eye were installed incorrectly by placing the saddle on the dead end of the wire rope. 2.The Crosby clips used to create an eye made a large loop instead of using a thimble with the wire rope wrapped around it. 3.The large turnbuckle with the jaws and a threaded bolt with a hole drilled through the end of the threaded end, contained a nut which was threaded on, however the cotter key retaining pin was missing. Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable abatement method involves the installing of guylines according to The Crosby Group, Inc.'s recommended guidelines. b.At this inspection site, on December 20, 2006, and at other times prior thereto, eight pressurized rubber hoses, two inches in diameter, were badly deteriorated at: 1.At a vertical wall approximately four foot tall in close proximity to the Koomey Accumulator on the East side of the substructure. 2.At the blowout preventer located under the rig floor at the cellar. Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable abatement method, involves the replacement of the deteriorated pressurized rubber hoses, in accordance with Section 9, Sub-Section 9.13, Paragraph 9.13.4 of the American Petroleum Institute's Recommended Practice 54, (3rd Edition; August 1999).
