Even with the amount of information available, OSHA regulation violations still do occur. Violations can be described as a company failing to adhere to safety regulations. These violations can occur due to management or employees ignoring regulations, or failing to keep informed about current regulations.
Common violations seen by OSHA include failing to wear hearing protection or safety glasses, which were discovered as a result of employees loosing their hearing, or damaging their eyes. Another violation commonly seen involves a few companies who were cited for their haphazard way of documenting employee injuries. By not keeping proper records, it would be hard to assess what areas needed safety improvements. Lastly, another common violation found in some workplaces, are blocked safety doors that need to be used to escape in the event of an emergency.
