More of OSHA’s ‘most interesting cases’

What happened – and what not to do


The information brought to light by OSHA investigations can help prevent similar incidents – and, in turn, injuries and deaths – from happening.

Our initial coverage of OSHA’s annual “Most Interesting Cases” in December 2022 was so well-received that we’ve brought the topic back for another round. Here are the latest cases, presented during the 2023 NSC Safety Congress & Expo in October.

The panel for the technical session included:

  • Clinton Girton, whistleblower investigator in OSHA’s Region 6
  • Jennifer McWilliams, safety engineer in OSHA’s Region 4
  • Terri Irvin, a compliance assistance specialist in the Baton Rouge, LA area office, was scheduled to present but was unable to attend the session. Safety+Health acquired Irvin’s portion of the presentation.

Here are the cases they presented.
