If you are a business owner you are probably familiar with OSHA or The Occupational Safety & Health Administration. They are part of the US Department of Labor and were created to assure safe and healthful working conditions for men and women. Workers are entitled to safe working conditions and they can report your business if they feel they are being put in harms way.

OSHA has released a list of the top 10 most frequently cited violation for 2013. This includes:

  1. Fall Protection
  2. Hazard Communication
  3. Scaffolding
  4. Respiratory Protection
  5. Electrical Wiring Methods
  6. Powered Industrial Trucks
  7. Ladders
  8. Lockout/Tagout
  9. Electrical Systems Design
  10. Machine Guarding

As a business owner you can use this list to not only ensure you pass OSHA standards but to also help reduce your workers compensation claims. Not only will workers compensation claims cost your additional money with pay for time off and production loss but you could also see in increase in your insurance information.
