Ten Most Frequently Violated OSHA Rules

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is an organization dedicated to ensuring the well-being of employees across the nation. To do this, OSHA creates rules and safety practices for all employers to follow, and then issues citations when those standards are broken. In 2014, OSHA released a report of the top ten most commonly broken rules in an effort to raise awareness of these dangerous working conditions.

At WorkSTEPS, our trained representatives have a thorough knowledge of OSHA regulations, and we make it our mission to educate employers and employees on these safe practices in order to prevent workplace injuries and promote safety and health.

Top Ten Violations

According to the OSHA report published in 2014, the following are the ten most commonly broken workplace regulations:

  • Fall Protection in Construction
  • Hazard Communication
  • Construction Scaffolding
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Powered Industrial Trucks
  • Lockout/Tagout procedures
  • Ladders in Construction
  • Electrical/Wiring Methods
  • Machine Guarding
  • Electrical/General Requirements

Regulations regarding the above standards, and other OSHA rules, can be complex and difficult to implement in a workplace that employs a large number of workers. Direction from a WorkSTEPS instructor can help you and your employees develop a firm and thorough understanding of OSHA rules in order to prevent violations and citations.
