In 2022, OSHA's most frequently cited violation was the failure to meet General Fall Protection requirements. In fact, four of the top ten citations issued by OSHA were related to fall protection, encompassing citations regarding ladders, scaffolding, and fall protection training. Shockingly, nearly all of the largest OSHA fines handed out in 2022 were penalties for neglecting to comply with fall protection regulations, with one Ohio contractor receiving a hefty fine of over $1 million for fall protection violations.

To shed some light on the underlying psychology behind this trend and discuss ways to avoid these violations, we interviewed Fall Protection experts, Kevin Muldoon from Mazzella, and Dan Montchal from Tractel.
