The Top 10 List NOT To Be On

The 2021 list of OSHA’s Top 10 most cited violations continues to look similar to previous years.  It’s a reminder to not become complacent with your health and safety programs, even when other priorities demand our attention.

BUT FIRST, before listing the OSHA Top 10 List NOT to be on, here’s Dimensions’ 2022 Wish List:

  • More Employee Involvement
  • Leadership Engagement and Development
  • Manager Support and Manager Development 
  • Manager Interest In, and Responsibilities for, Safety
  • Safety Aligned as an Essential Business Strategy
  • Focusing on Psychologically Safe Work Environments
  • Effective Safety Management Systems
  • More Collaboration
  • Leading Indicators Rather than Focusing on Lagging Indicators
  • Engaged, Energized, and Fulfilled Employees, Managers and Leaders
  • Fostering a Safe and Healthy Culture 
  • Enhanced Well-Being

The OSHA Top 10 includes both General Industry (1910) and Construction (1926); however, depending on your safety issues, it’s important to consider the applicability of these findings within your workplace.
