Here is a little top ten list fun on this pre-Valentine's Day Thursday.  I spent way too much time earlier this week helping my 4th grade daughter put together her Valentine's Day box for school and I'm sure several of these standards were violated in my kitchen.

Without further ado here is the list . . .  

10. electrical systems design (good news here for our project -- it was super low tech so no chance of a violation here)

9.  machine guarding (the scissors I used to cut the shoe box should have been guarded or at least my fingers believe that to be true)

8.  electrical wiring methods

7.  ladders (I'm sure my small two step ladder/stool I used to get to the top shelves in the pantry for construction paper violate something here)

6.  lockout/tagout

5.  powered industrial trucks (thankfully we didn't need a lift to get the box out the door for deliver to school)

4.  respiratory protection (the smell of glue sticks and markers in the air surely required some form of protection)

3.  scaffolding

2.  hazard communication (anytime I work on an artistic related project somebody should be warning the rest of the house)

and the number one most cited standard . . .

1.  fall protection (thankfully the table top isn't high enough to qualify as a fall hazard although I did drop quite a few things if that counts)

For all of you that have some safety responsibilities, this list is a good starting point for thinking about the types of issues you might have present in your workplace.
