Concord Steam Safety Violations Abound

The Union Leader recently reported in a story that Concord Steam has been fined more than $100,000 by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The fines stem from a work injury that occurred on January 22, 2009. The Concord-based company is reviewing the allegations made by OSHA and has declined further comment.

The worker was injured when pressurized oil ignited after leaking from a boiler. Reportedly, the boiler was in a state of disrepair, with OSHA declaring it to be a fire and explosion hazard. OSHA filed a total of 73 safety violations against Concord Steam, a clear indication that its employee’s safety was considered inconsequential as indicated by the lack of upkeep of its equipment.

Among the other potential hazards cited by OSHA was the risk of crushing injuries, falls, electrocutions, suffocation, and lack of safety exits in the event of an emergency. With such a wide array of safety violations and dangers in the workplace, Concord Steam has exposed itself to premises liability lawsuits, in which employees who have suffered as a result of Concord Steam’s negligence may seek compensatory damages as retribution.
