Current Cost of OSHA Violations are:

-  Serious violations costs up to $7,000

-  Willful violations costs up to $70,000 for each plus management getting a court imposed fine, up to six months in jail, or both - criminal conviction, up to $250,000 for individual; and years in jail and $500,000 for corporation - corporate officers may be imprisioned

-  Repeat violations costs up to $70,000

-  Failure to abate costs up to $7,000 per day


An OSHA violation due to company negligence that contributes to an accident involving injury(s) will increase the cost of the accident.  It will usually increase by 4 to 5 times what it should cost.
