Currently the maximum allowable penalty of $132,598 for each willful or repeated violation and $13,260 for each serious or other than serious violation may be assessed.
Hazards can be introduced over time as the workflow or work processes change, equipment or tools become worn, maintenance is neglected, or housekeeping practices decline.
Regular inspections to the workplace for hazards can help identify problems so that they can be addressed before an incident occurs.
The Budget and Reconciliation Act, which was passed by the 101st Congress, increased the amount for penalties that may be imposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
This “General Duty” clause in the Act expresses the fundamental goal of protecting a company's most valuable asset -- it's employees.
