OSHA Releases Top 10 Violations for 2013

Once again, Fall Protection topped the list of workplace safety violations most often cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The Top 10 was revealed on Oct. 1 during the 2013 National Safety Council Congress & Expo. “We appreciate our colleagues at OSHA sharing their most recent data as we look toward Leading Safety into the Future,” said National Safety Council President and CEO Janet Froetscher. “Today’s presentation reminds us that it’s very important to learn from the past and address these top violations to help make our workplaces safer.”
