OSHA raises maximum civil penalties by 78%

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced an interim rule recently that raises existing maximum civil penalties by 78%.

The action was taken to comply with a federally mandated rate increase. As a result, OSHA will raise the maximum penalty for serious violations from $7,000 to $12,471 and will increase the fine for willful and repeated violations from $70,000 to $124,709.
