Most owners of small companies want to keep their workforce safe, minimize their environmental impact, and maintain compliance, but it’s not easy. OSHA, EPA, TCEQ, DOT & Hazardous materials regulatory compliance laws are complex & ever changing, and can easily overwhelm small businesses who often lack the time, resources and expertise to understand them. Many companies aren’t even sure which regulations apply to their operations, let alone how to manage them.
Unfortunately regulators don’t give passes to small business, and routinely issue huge fines and penalties to violating companies. Did you know that OSHA just increased their fine schedule by 78% in August, 2016? EPA implemented similar increases for environmental fines at the same time.
