We are locally dedicated with international scale.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has made approximately 32,266 citations in 2018. This past October, OSHA announced the Top 10 most frequently cited workplace violations for fiscal year (FY) 2018. The list unveils the past year’s most frequently cited standards stemming from OSHA worksite inspections and is released, in part, to help educate employers regarding future EHS efforts. Overall, violations are up for FY 2018. This indicates that OSHA is in a high-enforcement phase. BBJ Group warned about this in our previous blog post "OSHA is in a High Enforcement Phase".
Though the rankings for OSHA’s Top 10 violations list tend to change very little from year to year, there is a new contender added to the list for 2018. “Eye and Face Protection” makes its debut at #10 knocking out “Electrical-Wiring Methods” from 2017’s list.
Knowing how employees can be injured goes a long way in keeping them as safe as possible. BBJ Group provides employers health and safety compliance reviews, such as Hazardous Communication Planning and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Hazard Assessments to help protect employees and business interest by keeping people safe.
