OSHA unveiled its Top 10 list of most cited violations for fiscal year 2014 at the NSC Congress and Expo in mid-September on the exposition show floor. The announcement was made by Patrick Kapust, deputy director of OSHA’s Directorate of Enforcement Programs. Once again, the fall protection category topped the list.
Although this annual list of the most frequently cited violations typically features the same hazard categories from year to year, the rankings always change. This year, the top four categories remained the same. Unfortunately, the lockout/tagout category jumped up three spots from the 2013 listing. However, the good news is the two “electrical” categories both fell to a lower position in this year’s ranking.
