ENVIRONMENTAL

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 non-managerial 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.

Unit V Assignment

You managed to schedule an informal conference with the area director at the regional OSHA office four days after you receive the Notice of Citations and Penalty. Based on the citations and penalties you received in Unit III, prepare a document that lists the citations and penalties you wish to discuss with the area director.

You should summarize what you are trying to accomplish in regard to each citation/penalty you choose, to include:

 The information you will use to try and accomplish your goal,

 The information you will take with you to the meeting, and

 Who will accompany you to the meeting.

You must support your actions with reliable sources. Your grade will be based on your ability to present a case to your professor (serving as the area director) to reduce either the severity of some citations, or the amount of some penalties. If you simply state that you accept the citations and penalties as written, you will receive a minimal score on the assignment.

Your response must be a minimum of two pages in length, not including the title page and reference page. You must use at least one reference in the paper. All sources must be cited in the text and on the reference page, using APA style.
