OSHA’s Top 10 Most Cited Violations

OSHA came out with their Top 10 list earlier this year in October at the National Safety Council Expo.  With 2009 coming to a close next week, we thought we should review this list.  On the list you will see that ‘Hazard Communication’ makes it into the number 4 spot.  After reading this list if you think that your MSDS Management system could use some work, feel free to contact us and we would be happy to talk to you about how our products at KHA can help you and your company keep your material safety data sheets up to date and in order.
