Top 10 OSHA Safety Violations Announced for 2022
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has released its list of the most frequently cited safety standards violations for 2022. The annual list, based on worksite inspections, aims to alert employers and safety professionals about common violations to help prevent them.

Workplace injuries and illnesses can devastate employees and their families, but are also painful to a company’s bottom line. Lost productivity and medical, legal, and workers’ compensation expenses cost U.S. businesses billions of dollars each year. Add to that expense an OSHA citation, which can cost up to $145,027 per violation, it is easy to see how an effective safety and health program saves money.
