Top 10 Problems OSHA Inspectors Look For

We recently attended a training seminar called OSHA Compliance. Most of the attendees of the seminar were small- to medium-sized business owners or managers who wanted to learn the best ways to protect themselves from being in violation of OSHA regulations.

One interesting part of the seminar was when the trainer detailed a list of the top ten problems an OSHA inspector looks for when they visit a business. Here is that list:

  1. Sources of motion
  2. Sources of high temperature
  3. Sharp objects
  4. Rolling objects (crushing)
  5. Harmful dusts
  6. Falling objects
  7. Schematic/layout of workplace
  8. Chemical exposure
  9. Electrical hazards
  10. Slippery surfaces

The above list shouldn’t be confused with the more commonly-seen Top Ten OSHA Violations/Citations list.
