Want to see what your state-level OSH agency has been up to? Federal OSHA has a new webpage that shows state plan enforcement cases with initial penalties above $40,000, on a state by state basis. Site visitors can click on a map to get information about citations issued starting January 1, 2015. Cases are updated weekly and there is a posting delay to ensure the parties have been notified.
For instance: Nevada OSHA issued six serious safety violations, totaling $47,000, to the Southern Nevada Regional Housing Authority for failing to adequately protect its workers. An Authority worksite lacked trench cave-in protection, proper ladder safety and workers at the site were found to be not wearing hard hats.
