OSHA AREAS OF CONCERN:
- Workers without required training.
- BP failing to provide sufficient or timely date on injuries and illness, chemical sampling, monitoring data and training materials.
- Concerns that BP’s manager of workplace safety “does not appear to operate with the full support of the company, nor does he seem to have the authority necessary for the job which he has been tasked.”
- “We strongly suggest that BP place someone in this position who has the authority and the ability to make changes expediently in order to address the safety and health of cleanup workers.”
- BP’s failure to address heat stroke concerns. “There continue to be multiple heat-related incidents each day, some of which have been serious.”
