We’re taking a deep-dive look into each of OSHA’s most-cited violations in 2018 to help you identify common pain points in your workplace, and provide you with best practices for improving safety, preventing injuries and avoiding fines. Number 10 on the list with 1,528 total violations is Personal Protective and Life Saving Equipment (1926.102), with eye and face protection being the most cited of the offenses. New to the list in 2018, OSHA issued 1,353 citations alone for “serious” violations in this category.

The OSHA Log: It’s that time of year again

Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to keep a record of serious work-related injuries and illnesses throughout the year. This “record” is known to most of us as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) 300 or OSHA Log. February 1 marks the deadline for employers to tabulate their OSHA 300 Logs and post your OSHA 300A Summaries. March 2 marks the deadline for submitting Form 300A summary data to OSHA electronically via OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application (ITA).  


OSHA’s naughty list

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has made its list (and checked it twice) of the 10 most frequently cited violations of 2018. While the list does not change much from year to year, there are still lessons that can be learned from other employers’ mistakes. We present to this list to help you identify common pain points and keep your workplace on the nice list. Following a broad discussion of the top 10 violations, we’ll take a deep-dive look into each issue every month throughout 2019.
