  1. Many of those violations are petty, but need corrected. As far as an $18,000 fine ~~ a joke. OSHA can and does levy some harsh fines. FR will see these fines reduced to a pittance. FR has to see these as a minor annoyance and small cost of doing business, especially under current market conditions. A big fine is into the mid-6 figure range. Besides, if you ever saw the conditions the Amish work and the condition of their equipment you would see this as a cruel joke.
