Companies who fail to comply are subject to fines that will gradually increase if the guidelines are not complied with. In most cases, when a company is found to be in violation of any of OSHA’s regulations or guidelines, management is notified and they’re given a specific amount of time to correct the problems. If the company is not in full compliance by the deadline given, the company could face hefty fines or even closure if the violations are severe enough.
