Top 10 OSHA Violations of 2022

April 24, 2023
See this year's updated rankings.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Acting Director of OSHA's Directorate of Enforcement Programs Patrick Kapust presented OSHA’s Top 10 most frequently cited safety standards for 2022. Announced on Sept. 20, 2022 during the 2022 National Safety Council (NSC) Safety Congress & Expo, the list remains relatively unchanged compared to past years.

For the 12th year in a row, Fall Protection – General Requirements secured the No. 1 position. Other notable changes to the 2022 listing include Hazard Communication jumping to No. 2, three spots higher than its 2021 ranking (No. 5). Powered Industrial Trucks also rose two spots to No. 7 from No. 9 in the previous year.

While reviewing the overall data from 2021, it’s also important to note that the overall number of citations from the Top 10 did increase from 2021 to 2022 by more than 1,100.
