What are the most commonly cited OSHA violations?

Every Colorado business has a duty to comply with the rules and regulations of OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Sometimes, though, that can be challenging. There are so many OSHA regulations that even businesses with the best of intentions can sometimes miss the mark. Knowing the most commonly cited violations can help businesses understand what inspectors are looking for. It can also help employees know which hazards pose the biggest risks.

Fracking sand may cause lung issues

The oil extracting process commonly known as fracking has been in the news recently in Colorado because there may be health risks from the chemicals used in the practice. However, workplace safety also appears to be threatened by the fine sand that workers inhale while employed in a fracking field.

Traumatic brain injuries and workers' compensation

There are many different types of injuries that can occur in the workplace. One of the most common is the traumatic brain injury. One type of TBI is called an open head injury. That is when a foreign object, like a bullet, penetrates a person's skull. The second type of TBI is called a closed head injury. This occurs when a person receives an injury or blow to his head, such as during a fall from a roof.

Disability benefits through workers' compensation

A Colorado employee who is injured in a work-related accident may qualify for lost income replacement benefits on either a temporary or permanent basis. For injured workers whose injury necessitates them missing more than three days of work, payments for the missed work can begin on the fourth missed day.
