Top 5 OSHA Citations for Golf & Country ClubsHistorically, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has not payed a great deal of attention to the Golf and Country Club industry in comparison to other “high-hazard” industries. OSHA officials admit that in the past, reasons for most of their inspections at clubs was due to either employee complaints or employee injury/fatalities.

More recently, OSHA has been focusing on the club industry and hitting clubs with more and more citations for violating OSHA standards. Not only are these citations frustrating, but they are financially costly to the club as well.

Here are the Top 5 Most Common Golf and Country Club OSHA Citations from 2019:

  1. Hazard Communication
  2. Maintenance, Safeguards, and Operational Feature for Exit Routes
  3. General Requirements: Personal Protective Equipment
  4. Respiratory Requirements
  5. Portable Fire Extinguishers
