Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to injuries caused by fragments due to leakage, rupture, or failure of air receivers. The following conditions contributed to the existence of these hazards: a. Air Receiver, Steam Plant Basement Next to #9 Air Compressor - Where visual examination of the shell of the air receiver indicated the shell was dented/depressed, the overall dimensions of the vessel were not checked to determine the extent and seriousness of the distortion. b.
