OSHA Top Ten Violations for 2014

OSHA just released its list of the top ten most frequently cited workplace safety violations for fiscal year 2014. The 2014 list includes all the same all the same standards as last year’s list, and the four standards at the top of the list appear in the same order that they did last year, too.

The biggest “riser” was lockout/tagout (1910.147), which checked in at #8 last year but jumped up to #5 this year.
