Text For Citation: 03 Item/Group: 001 Hazard: LIFTING

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 the hazard of crushing injuries: Employees working in M1, M2, and M3 are exposed to the hazard of being crushed by a load suspended from the Harrington hoists located above the hoppers because the lifting devices are not marked with the rated load where it was visible and a nameplate of the permanent marking is not affixed on the lifting device containing the manufacturer name and address, serial number, lifter weight and the rated load. Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable abatement method to correct this hazard is to mark the rated load of the lifting device on the main structure where it is visible and affix a nameplate or other permanent marking displaying the manufacturer's name and address, serial number, lift weight and rated load in accordance with ASME B30.20-2010, American Society of Mechanical Engineers for Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices, Section 20- 1.2.1. The employer did not ensure the lifting devices were marked with the rated load where it was visible and a nameplate of the permanent marking was affixed on the lifting device containing the manufacturer's name and address, serial number, lifter weight and the rated load. To abate this violation, the employer must ensure the lifting devices are marked with the rated load where it is visible and a nameplate of the permanent marking is affixed on the lifting device containing the manufacturer's name and address, serial number, lifter weight and the rated load and that no employee uses the lifting devices until such changes have been made. Pursuant to 29 CFR 1903.19, the employer must submit documents describing the steps it is taking to ensure compliance, including removal of the unmarked lifting devices and installation and use of appropriately marked lifting devices. THE ALL-FEED PROCESSING AND PACKAGING, INC. WAS PREVIOUSLY CITED FOR A VIOLATION OF THIS OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH STANDARD OR ITS EQUIVALENT STANDARD SECTION 5(a)(1) WHICH WAS CONTAINED IN OSHA INSPECTION 310802228, CITATION 1, ITEM 2, WAS AFFIRMED AS A FINAL ORDER ON FEBRUARY 3, 2009, WITH RESPECT TO A WORKPLACE LOCATED AT 717 WEST DIVISION STREET, GALVA, ILLINOIS 61434-1636. ***Abatement documentation is required for this item in accordance with the requirements of 29 CFR 1903.19(d)***
