Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001A Hazard:

OSH ACT of 1970 SECTION (5)(a)(1): The employer did not furnish employment and 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 crushing hazards during the demolishing of the old communication tower: The employer is failing to protect employees from the hazard of falling or being crushed when working on or around any site where a gin pole is being used at heights. This hazard was most recently documented when employees were working from and around a communication tower under demolition, where a gin pole was being prepared to lower tower sections and components to the ground at a significant height and didn't have proper identification markings to guide employees to the correct load chart and proper use. Among other methods, a feasible and acceptable means of abating this condition include marking the gin pole properly as outlined in the TIA standard TIA-1019-A, section 6.2.6
