OSHA’s Top Ten Citations, 2020

Every year, OSHA releases a list of the 10 standards most for which OSHA field agents most commonly issue citations to employers for violations.

To be honest, the list is largely the same every year. In most years, the same 10 standards appear on the list. Sure, some years one or two new standards will make it, but it’s generally the same 10. And in most years, the order from 1-10 is pretty much the same, too. Again, sometimes specific standards move up and down a few slots, but there’s not a TON of movement and Fall Prevention & Protection is typically the most cited violation.

So in a normal year, this isn’t exactly the most dramatic show in town.
