The following is a list of the top 10 most frequently cited standards following inspections of work sites by federal OSHA for fiscal year 2017. OSHA publishes this list to alert employers about these commonly cited standards, so they can take steps to find and fix recognized hazards addressed in these and other standards before OSHA shows up. Far too many preventable injuries and illnesses occur in the workplace. The ISEA’s Qualified Safety Sales Professionals (QSSP’s) and member companies can help employers address these commonly cited standards when appropriate with safety equipment recommendations.
