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 stuck-by hazards: At this location, on or about April 29, 2008, and at times prior thereto, four Demag CC2800 cranes (s.n. 62162, 62156, 62143 and 62155) were utilized in a lift of the upper raft float of the ATP/Bluewater Min Doc. The employer did not ensure the cranes with deficiencies, such as, but not limited to, the following, were corrected prior to use. a.Block leveling indicator failure.(Demag cranes s.n. 62155, 62143, 62162) b.Unreliable Electronic Crane Information Systems which caused sudden stopping of the crane during "critical lift" situations.(Demag cranes s.n. 62155) c.Inoperable boom stop.(Demag cranes s.n. 62162) d.Broken rocker switches and control panel buttons.(Demag cranes s.n. 62143, 62155, 62162) e.Missing rear Tray wiring.(Demag cranes s.n. 62156, 62155, 62162, 62143) f.Dry (unlubricated) load line and counterweight lines.(Demag cranes s.n. 62156, 62155, 62162, 62143) g.Inoperative Anti-two-blocking device.(Demag cranes s.n. 62143) h.Inoperative wind speed indicator.(Demag cranes s.n. 62155, 62162, 62143) i.Facility mechanics assigned to address and repair crane malfunctions were not adequately trained for the complexities of the Demag CC2800 cranes. j.Cranes involved in critical lifts were not certified as in good operating condition prior to the lift. One feasible means of abatement would be to maintain and repair the cranes in accordance with ANSI B30.5-2007 (Mobile and Locomotive Cranes) and the manufacturer's Operations Manual.
