Oil and Gas Equipment Manufacturer and Staffing Company Commit 34 Safety Violations: OSHA

Workers were exposed to unguarded machine, fall protection, and confined space hazards, according to OSHA.

Exterran Energy Solutions LP has been issued two repeat, 23 serious, and four other violations, while South Texas Specialty Welders LLC has been issued four serious violations by OSHA after an inspection at an Alleyton, Texas, work site discovered the employer failed to make sure contaminated materials were properly disposed, as well as properly labeled.

Exterran was also cited for failing to prevent fall hazards, provide clear instruction, prevent material handling hazards, inspect and test lifting devices, and properly guard points of operation. Exterran faces fines totaling $111,000, while South Texas Specialty Welders LLC faces $9,800 in penalties.

"Exterran knows that safety hazards must be identified and corrected. Unfortunately, the company was complacent, and safety and health practices were not a priority at this location," said R. Casey Perkins, OSHA's area director in Austin. "Fortunately we were able to record these violations and put these employers on notice before any serious injury happened."
