|De Minimis||A technical violation of an OSHA standard that poses no direct threat to the health or safety of employees. For example, ladder rungs 13 inches apart rather than 12 inches required by the standard would generally be characterized as a De Minimis violation.||De Minimis Violations
Carry No Penalty
|Other-Than-Serious||A violation that has a direct relationship to job safety and health, but probably would not cause death or serious physical harm. OSHA may assess a penalty from $0 to $1,000 for each violation. The agency may adjust a penalty for an Other-Than-Serious violation downward by as much as 95 percent, depending on the employer’s good faith (demonstrate efforts to comply with the Act), history of previous violations, and size of business.||Minimum: $0
|Serious||A violation where there is a substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result. OSHA assesses the penalty for a serious violation from $1,500 to $7,000 depending on the gravity of the violation. OSHA may adjust a penalty for a serious violation downward based on the employer’s good faith, history of previous violations, and size of business.||Minimum: $1,500
|Willful||A violation that the employer intentionally and knowingly commits. The employer is aware that a hazardous condition exists, knows that the condition violates a standard or other obligations of the Act, and makes no reasonable effort to eliminate it. OSHA may propose penalties of up to $70,000 for each willful violation. The minimum willful penalty is $5,000. When a willful violation is deemed to be ‘egregious’ then OSHA can apply willful violation limits found of for every violation found or for every employee exposed to hazards.||Minimum: $5,000

Violations can bring a fine or up to $70,000 for each such violation within the previous 3 years. To calculate repeated violations, OSHA adjusts the initial penalty for the size and then multiplies by a factor of 2, 5, or 10 depending on the size of the business.||Maximum: $7,000|

Safety Meeting Manuals
Safety Meeting Manuals – Our Safety Meeting Manuals include 52 Safety Topics to help train your workers on potential risks and prevent work-related injuries and illnesses, and will help you stay in compliance with OSHA.
Having planned meetings is a convenient way to review required training. The topics will help raise awareness among your workers about potential hazards to prevent work-related injuries while implementing a safety-conscious environment.
Our manuals include record sheets to document the date, safety topic, attendees’ signatures, and any additional recommendations or comments. These records should be filed for the duration of each worker’s employment. This way, you can demonstrate compliance to an OSHA inspector or other regulatory authority.
Why are safety meetings important?
Without constant reminders about safety, we tend to forget, be careless, take risks, and have accidents. Safety meetings are a great reminder and keep your employees updated on changes in regulations, safety procedures, personal protective equipment (PPE), and job assignments and responsibilities.
Effective safety meetings ensure that workers, managers, and leaders remain safe, informed, and aligned with safety protocols in the workplace. Remember that if you are a business owner, manager, or supervisor, then safety training is part of your job.
How often should safety meetings be held?
The answer depends on the needs of your company and workforce. Schedule your safety meetings regularly, so that employees get used to them as part of the work routine. Try to hold your meetings in a comfortable and distraction-free location. Choose a time that does not interrupt work activities and when everyone is most alert to pay attention.
