Top 10 OSHA Violations: 2018

In the construction workplace, violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) rules are offenses that should be taken seriously. Violations of the standards can result in an increased risk of injury on the job. OSHA recently released its list of the 10 most common violations for the 2018 fiscal year. Let’s count them from 1 to 10. Each specific code number is listed in parentheses next to the item.

  1. Eye and Face Protection (1926.102)
  2. Machine Guarding – General Requirements (1910.212)
  3. Fall Protection – Training Requirements (1926.503)
  4. Powered Industrial Trucks (1910.178)
  5. Ladders (1926.1053)
  6. Lockout/Tagout – The Control of Hazardous Energy (1910.147)
  7. Respiratory Protection – User Seal Check Procedures (1910.134)
  8. Scaffolding – General Requirements (1926.451)
  9. Hazard Communication (1910.1200)
  10. Fall Protection – Duty to Have Fall Protections (1926.501)

Many of the most common violations were related to falling. The top fall protection violation was the most common one by nearly 3,000 violations. Professionals familiar with construction will be able to tell you that the list of the most common violations doesn’t change much on a yearly basis, though No. 10 made the list after being absent from 2017’s top 10.
