The silica rule: Can you afford noncompliance?
from Tools of the Trade
While noncompliance can cost you a maximum fine of $12,675 (though most people expect OSHA to be lenient in the beginning, except if the violation is willful). Repeated or willful violations can reach nearly $127,000. But considering the risks involved, you should be more concerned about your health than your wallet.
