OSHA Top Ten Citations: 2014

Steve Wagner

OSHA continues to increase hazard communications requirements, as well as reporting requirements for workplace injuries and illnesses, all in an effort to decrease the overall number of workers who are injured or killed on the job each year.

The top ten list of workplace hazard violations from 2014 is nearly the same as the year before, the most violations cited in these areas:

  • Fall hazards and protections
  • Hazard communications (chemicals and other hazardous materials)
  • Scaffolding
  • Respiratory protection
  • Powered industrial trucks
  • Lockout/Tagout (injuries during the repair/maintenance of heavy machinery)
  • Ladders
  • Electrical/wiring methods
  • Machine guarding
  • Electrical/general requirements

How does your employer stand up against the top ten list of citations and workplace hazards? Have they been cited for violations related to worker injury in the past year?

OSHA is working tirelessly to continue to decrease the amount of injuries and deaths suffered each year in the United States, and new training programs are making these efforts more and more successful with each passing year.

Take a look at this video for some recent statistics in the areas of workplace injuries, and how the U.S. holds up to other countries worldwide:
