Many of these citations are due to non-compliance with training requirements.

Each year, thousands of workers die on the job and millions more are injured or develop occupational illnesses. Tragically, as recently as 2019, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) reports that 5,333 workers lost their lives.

To protect workers, there are a number of OSHA standards that are enforced by the agency. A list of the 10 most frequently cited safety and health violations is released annually to help build awareness of areas that need to be given more attention. OSHA’s preliminary Top 10 Citations list for fiscal year 2021 includes:

  1. Fall Protection - General Requirements (5,295 violations)
  2. Respiratory Protection (2,527 violations)
  3. Ladders (2,026 violations)
  4. Scaffolding (1,948 violations)
  5. Hazard Communication (1,947 violations)
  6. Lockout/Tagout (1,698 violations)
  7. Fall Protection - Training Requirements (1,666 violations)
  8. Personal Protective and Life Saving Equipment – Eye and Face Protection (1,452 violations)
  9. Powered Industrial Trucks (1,420 violations)
  10. Machine Guarding (1,113 violations) 

“Employers are responsible for providing safe working conditions for all of their employees,” said Zahid Iqbal, MPH, CIH and Technical Director at Clark Seif Clark (CSC). “Each one of these citations may pose a threat to the health and safety of a worker. They also can be costly penalties for employers.
