What The OSHA Revealed About The Top 10 Violations In 2017


We all know that safety in the workplace begins with quality training and education. While this has been the topic of many recent debates, there is no hiding the fact that it is the cornerstone to getting it right the first time around. Recently, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration conducted some research to determine what safety violations are topping the charts this year. They used this information to create what they called a "Blueprint for keeping workers safe", as it aided in keeping workers information and empowered to take control of their safety.
Among the results were Electrical Wiring Methods at Number 10, Ladders at Number 6 and the top three being Fall Protection - General Requirements, Hazard Communication and Scaffolding respectively. OSHA also took this time to reiterate that, "When we all work together to address hazards, we can do the best job possible to ensure employees go home safely each day".
The final report is expected to be released in the December edition of the Council's Safety and Health Magazine. But if you want to stay ahead of the curve, there are many things that you can implement that would help to prevent you from being a part of the statistic. Feel free to also hop on over to their website to get more information.
