Top 10 OSHA Violations FY 2023

For the 13th consecutive year, Fall Protection maintains its position as the top concern on OSHA's list of violations. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2022, there were 5,260 reported violations, a number that rose to 7,271 in FY 2023. Notably, Fall Protection accounted for the highest number of serious and willful violations during this period.

OSHA delineates several critical standards aimed at mitigating safety hazards in workplaces. Employers can proactively address these risks by implementing preventive measures such as installing guards for openings, erecting guardrails and toe-boards, and providing harnesses, safety nets, or railings where fall hazards exist.

OSHA mandates that employers ensure work environments remain free of known hazards, maintain clean and dry work area floors, furnish necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) at no cost to employees, and facilitate accessible hazard training for all staff. Despite these requirements, violations persist unabated.
