Top 3 ways to avoid increased OSHA fines
from EHS Today
All it takes is one workplace safety or employee health violation to severely hinder a business's financial standing. With OSHA's near-80 percent fine increase going into effect August 1, and its more rigorous inspections process, it could be even more crippling to try to stay up to code. Until very recently, a serious OSHA violation penalty stood at $7,000. New rules now in effect have increased the fine to $12,600. When it comes to willful and repeat violations, penalties have gone up from $70,000 to $126,000 per violation. For small or medium sized business, it could spell the end.
