OSHA inspections have increased by 80% in this year?

OSHA’s Penalty Policies:

  2. Time frame for considering an employer’s history of violations and repeated violations has expanded from three years to five years.
  3. Employers can receive a 20% reduction in fines if they agree to retain an outside safety and health consultant.
  4. A penalty reduction may be permitted in recognition of an employer’s effort to implement an effective workplace safety and health management system.
