OSHA Publishes Fact Sheets to Promote
SAFE + SOUND Workplaces

When you hear the word “accident,” you probably think of an unexpected, random event that no one could foresee or prevent. Accidents “just happen.” However, most workplace injuries and illnesses don’t just happen—they are usually predictable and preventable. That’s why OSHA calls them “incidents” instead of “accidents.”
While using a different word might seem like a small thing, it’s part of a huge shift toward prevention—finding and fixing hazards before they lead to injury or illness.
This is where your OSHA 300 log comes in. You can actually use your OSHA 300 log to improve safety and health. The log is not just a way to look at your past safety and health record, and not just an OSHA requirement. It can be a powerful tool to help you identify hazards in your workplace so you can correct them and prevent future injuries and illnesses.


This fact sheet provides guidance to help managers and business owners conduct safety walk-arounds to identify hazards in the workplace and communicate with workers about hazards in their jobs.
There are at least two reasons why managers and owners should periodically conduct workplace inspections themselves. First, inspections demonstrate management’s commitment to improving safety and health by finding and fixing hazards. Second, walk-arounds let managers see for themselves how the safety and health program is working and whether it is effective in identifying and eliminating hazards. Safety walk-arounds can also help managers and owners assess how key elements of the safety program are working. For example, how engaged are workers in the program? Do workers feel they have received appropriate training? Do they know how to report a safety or health incident or concern?

OSHA Releases Preliminary List of Top 10
Most Frequently Cited Standards for FY 2018
OSHA has released its preliminary list of the Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards for FY 2018. OSHA publishes this Top 10 list annually to help guide employers and workers in identifying the most common hazards in their workplaces. OSHA considers the most frequently cited standards a starting point for organizations to focus on reducing potential hazards that can be the most harmful to their workers.

Fall Protection – General Requirements remains OSHA’s most frequently cited standard for the eighth year in a row. The top five violations remained unchanged for the fourth straight year, with Hazard Communication ranking second, Scaffolding third, Respiratory Protection fourth and Lockout/Tagout fifth on the list. Eye and Face Protection appears on the list for the first time in tenth place.

OSHA’s Top 10 preliminary list includes:

  1. Fall Protection – General Requirements (1926.501): 7,270 violations
  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
