Legislators may hike workplace safety penalties
from Wyoming Tribune Eagle
A legislative proposal could hold companies more responsible for workplace safety incidents that result in a death of an employee. State lawmakers will consider two bills that would increase the civil fines for employers found to be in violation of the Wyoming Occupational Health and Safety Act. Wyoming's current law sets the civil penalty at no more than $7,000 for "serious" violations. That changes to between $5,000 and $70,000 if an employer "willfully and knowingly" violates the state law.
