Common OSHA Violations
OSHA has rules and regulations for most industries, tailoring their regulations to the dangers faced in that workplace. Some regulations do, however, affect a variety of different types of workplaces. In fact, the following violations are among the ones most commonly cited:
- Failure of lockout controls on dangerous energy sources
- Dangerous ladder safety
- Unsafe electrical wiring
- Unsafe use or storage of powered vehicles
- A lack of respiratory protection in hazardous workplaces
- A lack of adequate fall protection for construction workers
- Insufficient communication for safety hazards in a workplace
These violations can cost employees their good health, leaving them in need of emergency medical care in many cases and/or the possibility of long-term treatment needs.
