At 9 a.m. on the first Monday of each month, I receive a recurring reminder to check the OSHA Enforcement web page for violations. It is a sobering exercise I started years ago that displays a list of OSHA-cited companies and details their penalties and fines. The list is not just isolated to small- and mid-size businesses; it is littered with Fortune 500 companies and the gruesome misfortunes that occur to their employees.
Bing! My email chimes as I receive an Outlook reminder. Usually, they alert me to upcoming conference calls or a task to be completed. This particular message reads, “OSHA Violations.”
