Fall protection remains OSHA’s most frequently cited violation

Fall protection has been number one for the past few years on the annual list of workplace violations released by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). In fact, “Fall Protection – General Requirements” tops the current list by a wide margin with 6,072 violations. Falls are among the most common causes of serious work related injuries and deaths. Employers must set up the work place to prevent employees from falling off of overhead platforms, elevated work stations or into holes in the floor and walls. 

OSHA electronic reporting deadline is July 1, 2018

Many employers with more than 10 employees are required to record serious work-related injuries and illnesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA’s) Form 300A. This information is used to evaluate and improve workplace safety, identify potential hazards and increase worker protections to lessen exposures where necessary.

Criminals at work: Keeping your business and employees safe

Whether it’s petty theft, a complex embezzlement scheme or the threat of workplace violence, when it comes to keeping your business and employees safe, you have to consider the possibility that some workplace crimes may be perpetrated by your own employees. In addition to the direct costs of the injuries and losses stemming from the criminal activity, you may face additional liability where you knew or should have known that your employee was unfit and posed a risk to others and you failed to exercise reasonable care in hiring or in retaining that individual. So how do you protect your business and employees from workplace crime?
