OSHA’s Top 10 Violations for FY 2017
What is Safe + Sound Week?
Every year the top 10 OSHA violations are published. Logically this makes no sense when the stated purpose of an accident investigation is to find the root cause and prevent any future occurrence of this situation, yet the accidents still occur.
The reasons are many, culture, employee action, no understanding of the OSHA standards,
behavior (It won’t happen to me), production pressures and need to have a job and work. How do
you break this cycle or fix this? One way is to look at your company from the Top down and
assess the current state of safety, culture, and risk you face. Safe T Pros comes in here we can
