OSHA Defense Lawyers
How OSHA Regulations Affect Construction Accident Cases
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a division of the Department of Labor and is responsible for setting and enforcing workplace safety and health standards. OSHA officials perform safety inspections and respond to catastrophes, fatalities, and complaints. If employers are found to be in violation of OSHA standards, heavy fines may apply. As of January 23, 2019, the maximum federal fine for a single violation is $13,260. A failure to abate will be fined at $13,260 per day past the abatement date, and a willful or repeated violation may result in a $132,598 fine.
