Employers are responsible for providing safe working conditions for all of their employees.

Millions of workers are injured or develop occupational illnesses each year. Sadly, as recently as 2020, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports there were also 4,764 fatal occupational injuries that year alone.

Employers are responsible for providing safe working conditions for all of their employees. To protect workers, there are a number of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (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 greater attention. OSHA’s preliminary Top 10 Citations list for fiscal year 2022 includes:

  1. Fall Protection - General Requirements (5,260 violations)
  2. Hazard Communication (2,424 violations)
  3. Respiratory Protection (2,185 violations)
  4. Ladders (2,143 violations)
  5. Scaffolding (2,058 violations)
  6. Lockout/Tagout (1,977 violations)
  7. Powered Industrial Trucks (1,749 violations)
  8. Fall Protection - Training Requirements (1,556 violations)
  9. Personal Protective and Life Saving Equipment – Eye and Face Protection (1,401 violations)
  10. Machine Guarding (1,370 violations)

“All of these citations may pose a threat to the health and safety of a worker, and each one of these can be costly to employers,” said Franco Seif, President of Clark Seif Clark (CSC). “At CSC, our industrial hygiene professionals are dedicated to helping businesses and institutions protect their workforce and comply with OSHA and Cal-OSHA regulations.
