OSHA Reveals Top 10 Safety Violations

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration released its list of the Top 10 most cited violations in the fiscal year 2010 — and the list is very similar to 2009.

Once again, the most cited violations concerned the use of scaffolding, but this year, ladders moved from 7th to 5th on the list, while lockout/tagout and electrical each fell one spot.

The complete list is below:

1. Scaffolding (8,371 violations)

2. Fall Protection (7,559 violations)

3. Hazard Communication (6,663 violations)

4. Respiratory Protection (3,932 violations)

5. Ladders (3,820 violations)
