OSHA is overseen by the Department of Labor. Their mission is to assure safe and healthful working conditions for all working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and by providing training outreach, education and assistance. As a company it's important that you understand how to comply with OSHA standards, by understanding what they mean and who has the authority to implement for your company in order to avoid violations. We explain in detail what a safety program looks like, the top ten violations, who needs a safety program, and when training has to be implemented. The top ten OSHA violations - 1. Fall Protection 2. Hazardous Communication (not having an actually written program or information readily available) 3. Scaffolding 4. Control of Hazardous Energy (the employee is properly trained) 5. Respiratory Protection (OSHA has made some adjustments due to COVID-19) 6. Ladders 7. Powered Industrial Trucks (retraining every three years, and who can train) 8. Training Requirements for Fall Protection 9. Machine Guarding (what do general requirements mean - all items that have a point of operation) 10. Personal Protective Equipment - and face protection Not every organization has the same exposure to hazards, at minimum training is handled at hire or at the onset of a particular task), but each organization must evaluate what safety program and standards apply to their industry.
