OHS issuing Stop-Work order and compliance orders for Millennium Cryogenics

Stop-Work order issued to Leduc business

Occupational Health and Safety(OHS) is issuing a series of orders for a cryogenics facility in Leduc.

Back on November 15, three men were killed at Millenium Cryogenics Technology and OHS is currently trying to piece together how it happened

In the meantime they have issued the business with one stop-work order, two stop-use orders and three compliance orders.

The Leduc business has until January 7 to meet the requirements of the compliance orders.

Speaking to The One News Trent Bancarz a spokesman for Alberta Labour explains what needs to be done to meet the compliance orders.

"They have to develop a written code of practice for working in a confined space of the cryogenic cooler, they have to establish an emergency response plan to respond to any emergency that requires a rescue or an evacuation and the final order is they need to designate a competent worker to conduct a hazard assessment related to working in a confined space" says Bancarz.

OHS says the stop-use order will remain until that system is designed, installed and maintained to acceptable engineering specifications while the second stop-use order relates to the companies ventilation system.

It's not known how long it will take to complete the investigation but by law, OHS has two years from the date of the incident to make the results public.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
