Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will discuss why OSHA penalties have increased after 25 years. Maximum OSHA penalties may jump as much as about 78 percent next year. For a provision quietly tucked away in budget legislation and not given so much media attention, this deal has the potential of severely hurting businesses large and small.

Why Should You Attend:

On November 2, 2015, President Obama signed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 into law. Section 701 of the Budget Act, entitled “Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015”, gives OSHA the go ahead to increase penalty amounts to catch up with cost of living adjustments since the last time OSHA’s civil penalties increased in 1990.

In this webinar, attendees will learn more about how the budget deal affects every employer within OSHA’s jurisdiction and what you can do to minimize your exposure.

  • Past efforts to raise maximum OSHA penalties
  • When the changes take place
  • Title VII of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015
  • A review of the increase for each type of violation: other-than-serious, serious, repeat, willful
  • Know the increased amount for each violation category
  • Understand why the increase in penalties is to occur
