These citations represent a threat to the health and safety of thousands of workers, and each one of these can be costly to employers.

Each year, millions of workers are injured or develop occupational illnesses. Sadly, as recently as 2021, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports there were also 5,190 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 2023 includes:

  1. Fall Protection - General Requirements (7,271 violations)
  2. Hazard Communication (3,213 violations)
  3. Ladders (2,978 violations)
  4. Scaffolding (2,859 violations)
  5. Powered Industrial Trucks (2,561 violations)
  6. Lockout/Tagout (2,554 violations)
  7. Respiratory Protection (2,481 violations)
  8. Fall Protection - Training Requirements (2,112 violations)
  9. Personal Protective and Life Saving Equipment – Eye and Face Protection (2,074 violations)
  10. Machine Guarding (1,644 violations)
