Old Saybrook, CT, August 19, 2015: As a result of OSHA's latest enforcement efforts, many of the same standards make the "most frequently violated" list again and again. In order to simplify this list for safety professionals, BLR has created an all-new infographic, OSHA's Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards for 2014.
The areas covered in the infographic include Fall Protection in Construction, Hazard Communication, Scaffolding in Construction, Respiratory Protection, Powered Industrial Trucks, Lockout/Tagout, Ladders in Construction, Electrical: Wiring Methods, Machine Guarding, and Electrical: General Requirements.
