The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is increasing penalties for serious safety violations, contending current fines are too low to have a deterrent effect.
OSHA’s average penalty for a serious violation has been around $1,000.
Under the agency’s new policy, the average fine for a serious violation – one that could cause death or serious injury – will increase to between $3,000 and $4,000.
