Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) Penalties

Through October 15, 2020, OSHA has fined 112 companies over $1.6 million for COVID-related violations, issuing citations to 27 establishments (including one in Green Bay) during the week of October 9th (with fines totaling $381,388). Per a recent news release, citations vary from recording and reporting failures to compliance issues. In the Green Bay case, for example, a failure to implement safety precautions led to 300 employees becoming ill.
