Another year almost over, and another Top 10 Most Cited Workplace Violations list is published, but some things seem to stay the same year after year. For the 12th year in a row, Construction Industry Fall Protection Standard remains OSHA’s most frequently cited violation.

The ten most frequently cited standards also has remained the same – with some standards moving around within the list. The goal behind the published list is to help identify trends and alert employers of these commonly cited standards, so they can take steps to find and fix recognized hazards – in hopes of saving lives.

  1. Fall Protection General Requirements (29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1926.501): 5,260 violations
  2. Hazard Communication (1910.1200): 2,424 violations
  3. Respiratory Protection (1910.134): 2,185 violations

Did you know November is National Career Development Month? This month-long awareness campaign encourages professionals to set career-related goals and acquire skills to reach those goals. No matter if you are brand new to the field or been in the workforce for many years, having those career goals, whatever they may be, helps workers stay motivated and inspired at work, increases productivity, and can strengthen their relationships with their supervisors.

Lack of career development opportunities is one of the biggest reasons people leave their current positions. Including career development plans as part of an ongoing conversation with your employees and helping them acquire new skills is a win for all. And when it comes to workplace safety, additional training not only helps boost employee engagement, but also helps maintain and improve the health and well-being of your employees.

Workplace Safety & Health provides a full range of quality industrial hygiene and occupational safety training services. Here’s a list of some of our courses available:

  • Complying with OSHA – 30 Hour/10 Hour Courses: basic introduction to OSHA standards
  • Hazwoper 24/40 Hour Courses: designed for site workers to meet the 40-hour or 24-hour classroom-based training requirements for OSHA’s HAZWOPER regulation
  • Hazwoper 8 Hour: annual refresher training requirement for hazardous waste site personnel who have completed either the 40-hour or 24-hour course
  • Safe Entry into Confined Spaces: designed around a series of practical exercises, testing proficiency in isolation techniques, air monitoring, the use of retrieval equipment and more
  • Lockout/Tagout Compliance: designed around the requirements of the OSHA standard and how they are applied to specific equipment located at your plant site

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has moved, due to a myriad of reasons, from the initiative status to a strategic necessity. Much of the emphasis in developing DEI programs is to recognize the varying backgrounds, cultures and other characteristics of specific groups of people.
