Work Injury and Workers Comp Claims Prevented by OSHA
Marathaon Oil’s Meraux Louisiana Refinery was cited for workplace hazards by OSHA recently. These hazardous conditions, if allowed to continue, would have lead to work injury, Workers Comp claims, and serious personal injury or wrongful death. A Louisiana Refinery injury was likely prevented by OSHA’s enforcement and action.
Specifically, OSHA found that Murph failed to inspect piping or fix relief valves, failed to cure conditions which could have led to fires or explosions, ignored recommendations made after internal safety audits, and that Murphy knew or should have known these hazards could have led to worker death or work injury.
