The fine was how much???!!!

A common mind set for many small construction companies and independent contractors is that they do not see a need for a safety program, because they have so few employees. Luckily every year OSHA Posts it’s compilations of top citations and dollar amounts per inspection. I want you to take a look at the 2010 list and hopefully realize just how important safety is. It’s not only important. It’s the law. If you need more information on any of the subjects listed below, let us know.

These citations cost employers more than $46 million or an average of about $900 a citation.
