Each year, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) identifies their top ten most frequently cited violations. Employers can use this list to identify recognized hazards in their workplaces and make sure they are in compliance. This will increase the safety of their workplace and avoid OSHA citations.

HEMIC has a team of Safety and Risk Management consultants who are available to help our policyholders with risk assessments and compliance.
