You receive a follow-up call from the area director saying the employee filing the original
non-formal complaint has provided additional information about the alleged health
situation and submitted a formal complaint using the OSHA-7 form, making the
complaint a formal complaint. A few days later, an OSHA compliance officer shows up at
your facility to perform a comprehensive inspection. The compliance officer presents the
proper credentials, and you verify that the compliance officer
is employed by OSHA and assigned to the local office.
During the opening conference, the compliance officer provides you with the formal
complaint, alleging that employees are exposed to hazardous concentrations of metal
fumes in welding areas of the plant, that you have not performed any air sampling to
determine exposure levels, that adequate ventilation is not present in welding areas,
and that adequate respiratory protection has not been provided to welders. As a part of
the inspection, the compliance officer requests the following documents:
chemical inventory list;
OSHA 300 logs;
Hazard Communication Program, including training records;
any sampling data that you have;
Respiratory Protection Program, including medical clearance letters and training
records;
written hazard assessment for personal protective equipment (PPE) used at the facility;
Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) for the metals you use in the production process and any
welding rods/wire used in
the welding area; and
any other written programs you have that are required by an OSHA regulation.
The compliance officer takes a walk-through tour of the facility, spending extra time in
the welding areas. During the walk-through, the compliance officer points out several
issues believed to be apparent violations. The issues are as follows:
Heavy haze is present in the welding area.
Individuals wearing half-mask air-purifying respirators have full beards.
Employees are using chemicals that could be injurious to the eyes, and no emergency
eyewash is present.
Eyewash is present in another area of the plant that is covered in dust, and there is no
indication of recent operation or inspection.
Employees are using chemicals that could be absorbed through the skin and are not
using any gloves.
Employees are performing maintenance inside a press with no lock-out/tag-out
applied.
No written lock-out/tag-out program is available at the time of the inspection.
Welding operation is performed near flammable materials, and no fire watch present.
There is no record of training for fork truck drivers. Extension cords are stretched across walkways.
Three containers are present in the plant with no label present on any of the
containers.
An employee could not find a SDS for the chemical he or she was using.
The compliance officer asks for a private conference room and a list of nonmanagerial employees. He tells you that he intends to interview four non-managerial
employees before leaving for the day. He also states that he will return the next
day to collect some air samples at the facility.
You are worried about the number of citations and penalties that you may face. Provide
a document summarizing the steps you would take as soon as the compliance officer
leaves, and the steps you believe you could have taken during the walk-through that
may have resulted in a quick-fix penalty reduction.
Your document must be at least three pages in length, not counting the title or reference
pages. You must also include at least one reference using appropriate APA style.
