Explosion leads to cancellation of safety award ceremony

Michigan OSHA (MIOSHA) is awaiting the outcome of an investigation to determine if it will present Marathon Petroleum with a safety and health award as planned. A ceremony and presentation to the company’s Michigan Division Refinery in Detroit were originally scheduled for May 8. But on April 27, a tank fire occurred at the site, forcing some nearby residents to evacuate.

According to MIOSHA, a Marathon representative called the agency on April 29 to inform them about the incident. MIOSHA says Marathon policy requires that a formal investigation be completed within 60 days.

MIOSHA says it is not pursuing its own investigation because the incident does not fall into a category of events requiring investigation. These include fatalities and hospitalization of three or more employees from a single incident.

The Marathon site was to be recognized for more than 7 million continuous hours worked with no days away due to injury—from February 2006 through July 31, 2012.

In an e-mail to BLR, an agency spokesperson noted, “MIOSHA and the company have yet to determine if this event will be rescheduled, as the present focus is on the investigation of this latest incident.”
