5,677 OSHA citations for Hazard Communications in 2016

Of OSHA’s most frequently cited violations in 2016, Hazard Communications (29 CFR 1910.1200) takes 2nd place with 5,677 citations.

In order to ensure chemical safety in the workplace, information must be available about the identities and hazards of all chemicals in use. OSHA standard 1910.1200 governs hazard communication to workers about chemicals that are both produced or imported into the workplace.

Both the failure to develop and maintain a proper written training program for employees, as well as the failure to provide a Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for every hazardous chemical, top the citation list.
