    OSHA’s Top 10 Violations for 2018 revealed at National Safety Council Congress and Expo

    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced the preliminary Top 10 most frequently cited workplace safety violations for fiscal year 2018. Patrick Kapust, deputy director of OSHA’s Directorate of Enforcement Programs, presented the Top 10 on the Expo floor as part of the 2018 NSC Congress and Expo, the world’s largest annual gathering of safety professionals.

    While the rankings for OSHA’s Top 10 most cited violations vary little from year to year, violation No. 10 on this year’s list, “Eye and Face Protection” (1926.102), was not on the 2017 list.

    “Knowing how workers are hurt can go a long way toward keeping them safe,” said National Safety Council President and CEO Deborah A.P. Hersman. “The OSHA Top 10 list calls out areas that require increased vigilance to ensure everyone goes home safely each day.”

    The Top 10 for FY 2018* are:

    1. Fall Protection – General Requirements (1926.501)7,270
    2. Hazard Communication (1910.1200)4,552
    3. Scaffolding (1926.451)3,336
    4. Respiratory Protection (1910.134)3,118
    5. Lockout/Tagout (1910.147)2,944
    6. Ladders (1926.1053)2,812
    7. Powered Industrial Trucks (1910.178)2,294
    8. Fall Protection – Training Requirements (1926.503)1,982
    9. Machine Guarding (1910.212)1,972
    10. Eye and Face Protection (1926.102)1,536

    A more in-depth look at the Top 10 violations for 2018 will be published in the December edition of the Council’s Safety+Health magazine.

    *Preliminary figures as of Oct. 1, 2018
