OSHA’s Top 10 Violations of Fiscal Year 2012 (TRN Safety Alert)

From Cliff Gerbick, CSP (The Reserves Network Director of Safety)

OSHA has released it annual list of the top 10 workplace violations for fiscal year 2012 (October 1, 2011 – September 30, 2012). Annually the list contains mostly the same standards, only switching positions, and this year is no exception. As the political landscape remains static, OSHA will continue to focus on increased planned inspections and higher penalty amounts. OSHA has repeatedly stated that they are an enforcement agency so one can only assume the number of inspections and citations will continue to rise.

With that said, here are OSHA’s Top 10 Most Cited Standards for FY 2012:

1. Fall Protection – General Requirements
Standard 1926.501
Total Violations: 7,250

2. Hazard Communication
Standard 1910.1200
Total Violations:
