OSHA Violation Respiratory Protection
What is OSHA?
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is a federal organization that ensures safe and healthy working conditions by enforcing standards and providing workplace safety training.
Respirators protect workers against insufficient oxygen environements, fogs, smokes, mists, and gases. These hazards may cause cancer, lung impairment, dieseases, or death. Respiratory protection helps avert hundreds of deaths and thousands of potential illnesses annually.
OSHA violations can potentially mean large financial penalties for a business. OSHA penalties are given out based on the severity of the violation. Some fines range from $60,000 for a small OSHA infraction to $1,000,000+ and potential facilities shut down.
