OSHA Workplace Violations Show Workplace Dangers

In our last blog post, we discussed the seriousness of workplace injuries. To help prevent injuries, workers should do their best to avoid dangerous situations. Furthermore, and just as important, companies should follow strict safety protocols.

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), some safety standards are violated more often than others. Here is a list of the top 10 most violated standards of 2014 (and the corresponding industry):

  • Fall protection, construction
  • Hazard communication standard, general industry
  • Scaffolding, general requirements, construction
  • Respiratory protection, general industry
  • Powered industrial trucks, general industry
  • Control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout), general industry
  • Ladders, construction
  • Electrical, wiring methods, components and equipment, general industry
  • Machinery and Machine Guarding, general requirements
  • Electrical systems design, general requirements, general industry

A workplace injury, regardless of industry, can happen when you least expect it. As a result, a person can be seriously injured or even killed. If you or a loved one is a victim of a workplace accident, contact us to learn more about your rights.
