All employers have employees exposed to hazardous conditions in the work place, and therefore a responsibility to exercise reasonable care to prevent and detect violations. OSHA’s Citation Policy defines and describes the degree of responsibility for workplace hazards imposed on creating, exposing, correcting, or controlling employers. The requirements imposed on a employer for hazards confronted by workers are too numerous to count and the even the most diligent employers can fall prey to unknowing exposing there employees to these hazards.
