OSHA Cites Crane For Safety Violations After Explosion

The Crane Army Ammunition Activity learned last month the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration would issue 36 notices for unsafe working conditions, after an explosion that injured 5 people earlier this year. 

The findings including 34 "serious" violations with a "substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard" known to the base. 

A pyrotechnic facility explosion March 28 sent five employees to a hospital for outpatient treatment and temporarily closed the unit. OSHA found the explosion and fire occurred in two dust collectors in the pyrotechnic building, where workers were in the process of cleaning a production area and there were multiple violations of OSHA rules. 

The base has made multiple improvements and has been working with OSHA on unresolved issues.
