The workplace safety hazards of not communicating

Without the labeling and training required by the hazard communication standard (29 CFR 1910.1200), workers might not realize that the chemicals they work with every day could be causing cancer, lung disease or reproductive harm — and that's a serious concern. Hazard communication takes the number two spot on OSHA’s "Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards" list (it's number one on the MNOSHA list). This should come as no surprise since hazard communication has held this spot for over five years. And with an average of over 4,500 violations per year, it’s likely to retain its spot when the 2019 list is published later this month.


Scaffolding safety remains #3 on OSHA’s most cited violations list

Each year the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) releases the Top 10 Most Cited Violations of safety and health standards, and in this article series we are discussing the third most cited violation: fall protection. The previous two articles in this series were about respiratory protection and the Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout-Tagout) regulation.
