Top 10 OSHA violations for 2023

Automotive and repair jumped up to number three as the most frequently cited industry

Westminster, Colo.—KPA’s EHS Regulatory Compliance Manager Zach Pucillo recently reviewed the Top 10 OSHA violations in 2023 during a podcast and provided insight into shifts in citation frequency and industries of concern. Notably, of the varied industries often in violation, he pointed out that the auto industry has risen in the ranks of concerns.

“I will say that automotive and automotive repair, which jumped up to number three as the most frequently cited industry, opened my eyes a bit,” Pucillo said. “I’ve worked with a lot of automotive repair companies in the past, and typically, they try to be on top of things, but the labeling of the chemicals usually ends up getting them in the long run.”

Here are the Top 10 violations according to KPA:

10. Machine Guarding with 1,644 total violations.
9. Personal Protective and Lifesaving Equipment for Eye and Face Protection, with 2,074 citations.
8. Fall Protection – Training Requirements, 2,112 citations.
7. Respiratory Protection, with 2,481 citations.
6. Lockout/Tagout Standard or Hazardous Energy Control, with 2,554 citations.
5. Powered Industrial Trucks, with 2,561 citations.
