OSHA Penalties 2021


On January 13, 2021, OSHA announced another increase in the maximum civil monetary penalties for violations of Federal Occupational Safety and Health standards and regulations. The new monetary penalties are approximately 2% higher than the previous penalty amounts.

These penalties have already been enforced and apply to any penalty assessed after January 15, 2020. Additionally, 2021 is expected to see a general acceptance for a greater number of inspections in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Coupled with several formal employee complaints, this could result in a heightened overall regulatory enforcement activity.
