How To Avoid OSHA's Top 10 Most Cited Standards
According to OSHA, during the fiscal year of 2016 (October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016), 1,080 workers were killed on the job. That translates to nearly 21 deaths a week or nearly three (3) every day. Patrick Kapust, deputy director of OSHA’s Directorate of Enforcement Programs who presented OSHA’s top 10 list of most frequently cited violations for 2016 at the National Safety Council Congress & Expo in Anaheim, CA, said “Take the list and look at your own workplace off of that list. ‘These are the things OSHA is finding. Would they find these at my workplace?’ It’s a good place to start.”
