Time is running out - avoid fines from OSHA.

OSHA recently released the top 10 most frequently cited violations of OSHA standards in fiscal 2014 for all companies and industries, and Standard 19101200 Hazard Communication (HazCom) came in second with 6,156 violations. This is due to the fact that HazCom violations occur across many industries, and are easy for OSHA inspectors to observe, in relation to hazardous materials not having labels or SDSs.

HazCom-related citations for all industries in 2014 amounted to penalties of $3,296,163. OSHA’s penalty policy states that the maximum penalty OSHA can assess for each serious violation is $7,000 and $70,000 for a repeated or willful violation.
