Top 10 OSHA Violations 2018

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has recently made available all citation data for the most recent fiscal year (October 2017 through September 2018). From the citation data, we can determine the top 10 OSHA violations for the current year. Each year, this resource helps employers and various professionals determine the top hazards in the industry they service. Some standards consistently rank in the top citations for an industry, such as Fall Protection for Construction, while others have just recently climbed the ranks, such as Process Safety Management for Manufacturing.

We’ve done the heavy lifting and compiled a list (and infographic) of the top 10 OSHA violations for both Construction and Manufacturing industries.
