According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the top 10 violations for 2013 were committed 45 percent more often than the year before.
“The overall spike in the number of violations this year compared to last year shows that OSHA is not averse to aggressively investigating and penalizing organizations for putting employees at risk,” says Jay Bruscato, Vice President of First Aid and Safety for Cintas Corporation, makers of industrial safety products. “To avoid these fines and protect employees, it’s critical that businesses understand OSHA requirements and take the proper steps to recognize and fix potential hazards in the workplace.”
