OSHA to Release Top 10 Fall Protection Violations List


For the sixth year in a row, fall protection (1926.501) is the most frequently cited OSHA standard. The agency, with the help of Safety+Health magazine, unveiled the “Top 10” list of cited violations at the 2016 National Safety Council Congress & Expo in Anaheim, Calif.

Patrick Kapust, deputy director of OSHA’s Directorate of Enforcement Programs, said “The Top 10 gives employers a place to start for finding and fixing hazards.”

The full list will be made available in December by the National Safety Council.
