Nevada Increases OSHA Penalties 01/2020

Nevada has increased the OSHA penalties for the Safety and Health Protection on The Job posting effective immediately.  Nevada’s Senate Bill 40 authorizes the Division to adopt penalties in amounts not to exceed those imposed by federal OSHA’s enforcement program. On January 10, 2020, OSHA announced an increase in the maximum civil monetary penalties for violations of federal Occupational Safety and Health standards and regulations.

The Nevada posting under the Proposed Penalties paragraph now reads as follows:

The Act provides for mandatory penalties against employers of up to $13,494 for each serious violation and for optional penalties of up to $13,494 for each nonserious violation.  Penalties of up to $13,494 per day may be proposed for failure to correct violations within the proposed time period.  Also, any employer who willfully or repeatedly violates the Act may be assessed penalties of up to $134,937 for each such violation.

The Nevada Labor Law Poster has been updated and released with the revised changes.
