Each year, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) releases preliminary data to support their latest Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards list at the National Safety Council’s Safety Congress & Expo. With a slight delay in last year’s data release due to COVID-19, the Administration is back on track announcing the new Top 10 list in partnership with Safety + Health magazine.

This year, the newest information for fiscal year 2021 was announced by Acting Director of OSHA and Directorate of Enforcement Programs Patrick Kapust in a presentation called, “See it live: OSHA’s Top 10,” moderated by S+H Associate Editor Kevin Druley. In the presentation, which took place at Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, Kapust announced the newest lineup of the Top 10 Most Frequently Cited Standards and the number of violations for each standard between October 1, 2020 and September 1, 2021. Let’s first take a look at the list:
