Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 004 Hazard: GUARDING

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 tripping hazards when walking/working on multiple levels of the FCCU structure where grating was detached and not level: The employer does not ensure that walking/working surfaces are level and free from tripping hazards. This violation was observed on or about March 13, 2009, on multiple levels of the FCCU structure where employees were exposed to tripping hazards where grating and metal decking was detached, not level, and contained holes. Among other methods, feasible and acceptable means of abatement includes repairing the floor levels with patches and welding techniques. Pursuant to 29 CFR 1903.19, within ten (10) calendar days of the date of this citation, the employer must submit documentation describing the steps that it is taking to ensure all walking/working surfaces are free from tripping hazards.
