OSHA Enforcement Cases: They Won’t Tell You; We will

Source: Jordan Barab, Confined Spaces blog, March 21, 2017

OSHA has stopped issuing press releases for large enforcement cases. In fact, the last enforcement press release was issued January 18, 2017, two days before the inauguration of Donald Trump. …. Being as OSHA is refusing to issue press releases for large cases, thereby refusing to take advantage of the leverage they provide, Confined Space will begin listing large enforcement cases. Note that there are still some technical issues I’m trying to work out. The links in the “More Info” column on the right, for example, will tell you what the violations were and the total fines. Unfortunately, I have not figured out yet how to activate the links without doing each one individually, so for now you’ll have to copy and past them into a new browser window.

The list below goes from January 18 to February 14. Additional cases will follow periodically…..
