Text For Citation: 02 Item/Group: 001 Hazard:

As part of the settlement, the respondent agrees to ensure that all abatement items that the company adopted after the OSHA inspection in this matter will be implemented. Of those abatement items, the procedures related to the control of hazardous energy, procedures related to isolation of equipment where engineering controls are insufficient, and training on such procedures with other Company facilities having similar flux oxygen delivery systems, and such procedures will be implemented where appropriate as best practices.
