2010 Most Frequently Cited OSHA Standards

The following is a link to the list of the top 10 most frequently cited standards following inspections of worksites by federal OSHA.

Far too many preventable injuries and illnesses occur in the workplace. United Alliance Services Corporation  has over 70 OSHA courses to address the majority of these most frequently cited standards, and assist you and your employer to prevent these common accidents and injuries on the job.
