November 17, 2017 - Over 1.8M In Fines For Didion Milling Inc.
After Fatal Grain Dust Explosion
November 17, 2017
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has proposed $1,837,861 in fines against Didion Milling Inc. following a May 31, 2017, explosion that killed five workers and injured 12 others, including a 21-year-old employee who suffered a double leg amputation after being crushed by a railcar. 

OSHA found that the explosion likely resulted from Didion's failures to correct the leakage and accumulation of highly combustible grain dust throughout the facility and to properly maintain equipment to control ignition sources.

OSHA cited Didion's Cambria facility with 14 willful - including eight willful per-instance egregious- and five serious citations, most involving fire and explosion hazards. The company has been placed in OSHA's Severe Violator Enforcement Program.
"Didion Milling could have prevented this tragedy if it had addressed hazards that are well-known in this industry," said OSHA Regional Administrator Ken Nishiyama Atha, in Chicago. "Instead, their disregard for the law led to an explosion that claimed the lives of workers, and heartbreak for their families and the community."
The egregious willful citations were issued for violating OSHA's Grain Handling standard by failing to perform required maintenance on operating equipment and implementing a housekeeping program to control dust accumulations. Willful citations were issued for failure to shut down ignition sources, prevent static electricity discharge, provide adequate personal protective equipment to employees, correct malfunctioning dust collection systems, maintain equipment safety controls, and have an emergency alarm system. Serious citations addressed hazards associated with fires and explosions, and the lack of employee training.

Proposed Penalty:  $ 1,837,861

The family of an electrician who died a month after getting seriously injured while doing work at an office building in Bridgewater has settled a lawsuit for $1 million, according to a report.
William Cotton, 49, suffered an electrical shock after stepping into a surge-protection device while doing maintenance work at the Goldman Sachs building on Nov. 23, 2013, according to NJLawJournal.com. Cotton died on Christmas Eve.
An attorney for Cotton's estate declined to confirm the settlement, citing a confidentiality agreement.   
The phone-booth sized surge protection device was energized with 26,000 volts of electricity, according to NJLawJournal.com. 
Cotton's employer, Scholes Electric, had been hired by the building's management company, CBRE, to replace the locks on several electrical components in the building. 
The suit was filed in Middlesex County because CBRE is based in Edison.

FlashTrack™ Arc Flash Data Collection Software

FlashTrack's™ simple, drag-n-drop interface is one of its biggest selling points. Couple that with the tool's intuitive, drop-down menus, convenient component libraries, and keyboard shortcuts, and you'll be up and running with FlashTrack in minutes!

FlashTrack™ is an award winning data collection software tool. FlashTrack™ was developed for the purpose of collecting the required equipment attributes that are needed to conduct an arc flash analysis. These same attributes can be used to complete a coordination study or short circuit analysis. FlashTrack™ allows the qualified data collector to model equipment relationships using a drag-n-drop interface. FlashTrack™ is used to catalog the attributes in the format of a single-line diagram. FlashTrack™ exports the completed files to an Excel file (.xls) or CSV file and produces a "Label Installation Report" containing the location of each item that requires a label to be installed. This report can have up to 4 photographs per item for easier item location. The label installation report will save you time and money and eliminate frustration when locating each piece of equipment.
