OSHAs Top 10 citations for 2015

The National Safety Council held its yearly Congress and Expo. One thing they release every year is the Top 10 most cited violations by OSHA Compliance Officers for this past year. (the governments yearly data is calculated from October to October)

#1
Fall Protection, 1926.501

#2
Hazard Communication, 1910.1200

#3
Scaffolding, 1926.451

#4
Respiratory Protection, 1910.134

#5
Lock Out/Tag Out, 1910.147

#6
Powered Industrial Trucks, 1910.178

#7
Ladders, 1926.1053

#8
Electrical, Wiring Methods, 1910.305

#9
Machine Guarding, 1910.212

#10
Electrical, General Requirements, 1910.303

This list has not changed much in the last few years. Spending a little more time in these areas can really save you time and money in the future. Another point to look at is this, if OSHA were to come to your workplace, chances are that they will walk away with one or two of these citations.

Why chance it? Keep safety a #1 priority and focus on a workplace where no one gets hurt.
