Safety Rules

A congressional subcommittee is currently reviewing the Protecting America’s Workers Act (PAWA), which would amend the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. If passed, it will increase the penalties available to OSHA and prosecutors in the case of certain infractions:

  • Felony charges would be available for an employer’s repeat and willful violations of OSHA regulations that result in a worker’s death or serious injury.
  • The minimum OSHA penalty for a worker’s death caused by a violation would be $50,000.
PAWA would also:
  • Amend the General Duty Clause to include all workers (including contractors) at a work site
  • Make employers responsible for providing employees with the necessary protective equipment
  • Require employers to keep a log of all recordable injuries at their work sites
