Willful and repeat violations: $132,598 (approx. $700 increase)
Other OSHA violations: $13,260 (approx. $300 increase)
Since When Do OSHA Penalties Change?Since the passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, OSHA has been authorized to raise civil penalties for work safety violations annually to match inflation. Before then, OSHA was exempted from the requirement to raise penalties on an annual basis.
