Every year, thousands of employers are cited for violating one of the many OSHA standards. These violations bring with them not only fines, they also put your organization on OSHA's "radar" for repeat visits.

The sad part is that the list of the top ten violations is virtually unchanged each year, meaning that just knowing what these are could make these types of violations virtually avoidable at your company - for both the aggravation and the fines!

The best way to avoid fines and intense inspections is to know not only what the common violations are, but to be in compliance before you get inspected!
