Job Safety: Top 10 Violators

Cal-Osha, the agency charged with enforcing workplace safety, writes thousands of citations each year against employers who fail to follow safety regulations. Here's a short video compilation of the top ten violators. The names on the list may surprise you, especially some at the top of the top ten.

Great piece. Disturbing and surprising.

I would be more interested in the top 10 violators with the more severe citations, the companies you list here may have a lot of citations but some of them could be predominantly composed of minor violations.

A ranking of citations per capita would be more telling. These are all huge employers. Having scores of violations for a company the size of Target does not necessarily mean it is a dangerous place to work.
And I also agree that it would make more sense to divide the violations among the various levels of severity.
