What’s the saying? “Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time?”

That seems to be OSHA’s attitude about alleged occupational safety and health violations. To reinforce that point, the agency now has increased fines for the first time since 1990, raising them from $70,000 to $124,709 for a single willful or repeat violation and from $7,000 to $12,471 for a serious or other-than-serious violation.
