OSHA’s New Penalties and Top 10 Violations – Learn How to Avoid Them
Aug 10 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

OSHA’s New Penalties and Top 10 Violations – Learn How to Avoid Them

Understand the most frequently cited violations, and learn about the increasing civil penalties for employers. Violations of OSHA’s safety and health regulations could result in increased fines that are 50-80% higher than they are currently. OSHA’s Review Commission has also recently ruled that OSHA can impose these penalties company-wide, so that fines at a primary site can be imposed on future inspections at other company sites. This may lead to similar violations at these secondary locations based upon knowledge of the violation at the first location, with fines being assessed to reflect “Repeat” status.

This webinar will teach you where to look to identify areas for improvement and to learn how to use the applications within the risk management platform to avoid cited violations and costly fines under the new OSHA requirements.
