Frequently violated regulations discussed included walking and working surfaces, standard guard rails, exits and exit markings, ventilation, environmental control, occupational noise exposure, hazardous materials, spray painting, personal protective equipment, respiratory protection, sanitation, medical and first aid, fire protection, fire extinguishers, compressed air equipment, powered industrial trucks, hoists, machinery and machine guarding, hand and portable powered tools, welding, cutting, and brazing, and the National Electrical Code.
