FAA Proposes $84,000 Penalty Against Honeywell, Inc. for Hazmat Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Southern Region, has proposed to
assess an $84,000 civil penalty against
Honeywell, Inc. of Phoenix, AZ, for
allegedly violating Department of
Transportation hazardous materials

The FAA alleges that on March 25, 2001,
Honeywell improperly offered a
fiberboard box containing one fuel
control unit holding aviation fuel, a
flammable liquid, to United Parcel
Service (UPS) for transportation by
air. Ground handling employees at the
UPS sort facility in Louisville, KY,
discovered the shipment leaking.

Honeywell offered the hazardous
material for transportation when it was
not packaged, marked, classed,
described, documented, or in condition
for shipment as required by
regulations. Honeywell also failed to
ensure employees were trained to
properly package and handle hazardous
materials, and did not make available
at all times the required emergency
response information.

Honeywell has 30 days from receipt of
the FAA notice to submit a reply to the
agency. This announcement is made in
accordance with the FAA’s practice of
releasing information to the public on
newly issued enforcement actions
involving penalties of $50,000 or more.
