Why Should You Attend:

You should attend this webinar to learn more about how the budget deal effect’s every employer within OSHA’s jurisdiction and what you can do to minimize your exposure. For over 5 consecutive years, penalties have increased drastically – do you know how what they currently are, more importantly, how to avoid them?

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.

Prior to 2015, OSHA penalties had not increased for 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.
