Press Release – FAA Proposes $195,000 Civil Penalty Against British Airways, PLC
Monday, 15 September 2014 14:31

"The FAA is proposing a $195,000 civil penalty against British Airways, PLC, for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on Aug. 14, 2012, British Airways offered a cardboard box containing a chemical oxygen generator to American Airlines for shipment aboard a passenger aircraft from London Heathrow Airport to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Oxygen generators are extremely flammable and are forbidden as cargo aboard passenger aircraft. The generator, which is a component in the passenger oxygen system, was being shipped to Texas for repair.

The FAA alleges British Airways did not declare the hazardous materials, and the shipment was not properly classed, described, packaged, marked or labeled. The FAA further alleges British Airways failed to label the package as an oxidizer that is suitable for transport by cargo aircraft only, provided no emergency response information with the package, and did not ensure its employees had received the required training for shipping hazardous materials.British Airways has requested to meet with the FAA to discuss the case."

New Reporting Requirements for Fatalities and Severe Injuries
Friday, 12 September 2014 15:07

"All work-related hospitalizations, amputations and loss of an eye will have to be reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, according to a final rule taking effect on Jan. 1, 2015. Under the newly revised rule, employers under federal OSHA's jurisdiction will be expected to report any fatality to OSHA within 8 hours, and any in-patient hospitalization, amputation or enucleation within 24 hours.

Previously, employers were required only to report fatalities, and when three or more workers were hospitalized. Though all employers will have to adhere to the new reporting requirements for fatalities and severe injuries, the rule also updates the list of industries partially exempt from routinely keeping injury and illness logs. The new rule will help OSHA focus compliance assistance and enforcement resources to better protect workers and prevent more workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities."
