With the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, Congress created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure safe and healthful working conditions for workers. Due to a complex set of regulations, many small-business owners simply do not know of or do not understand the OSHA regulations that apply to their business, which can result in huge costs—businesses can face a penalty of up to $70,000 per violation.
Small businesses face tremendous amounts of federal, state, and local regulations and staying up to date often costs them thousands of dollars each year. Even then, they can still be subject to large fines if they are in violation of OSHA regulations, even if they did so unknowingly.
