OSHA 'severe violators' cases grow steadily in early 2016
from Engineering News-Record
Federal safety officials have added, through mid-April, 21 new construction-industry cases to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Severe Violators Enforcement Program, according to a tabulation made by ENR. About 60 percent of the 520 or so companies that OSHA has placed in the program are construction-related, reports Business Insurance, an industry publication. Listing in the program subjects employers to stepped-up inspections and enforcement. OSHA also issues critical press releases about the companies in the program, a practice some employer attorneys have described as public shamings.
