Workplace Safety Violation Fines

Workplace safety violations will trigger stiffer fines. The recent budget law contains a little-noticed provision that jacks up the penalties imposed by OSHA…

Occupational Safety and Health Admin by up to 80%. Employers and labor groups were surprised by the change, and no one in Congress is taking credit for it so far.

The increases mean fines for “willful” and repeat offenses could rise to $126,000, while less severe types of violations could incur fines up to $12,600 and from $7,000 now.

Penalties could keep rising in the future, with amounts tied to inflation.
