OSHA fines going up: Webinar explores ways to minimize risk

FAIRFAX, Va. — Fines for OSHA violations will be going up at the end of next summer and the only question is how high they might go, but some in the field anticipate hikes between 75 and 80 percent. So with fines set to nearly double, it’s a good time for dealers to re-evaluate their in house safety programs.

A free webinar from the RV Learning Center on Dec. 17, at noon ET will get dealership staff out in front of this issue. Register online.

Webinars are provided by RVDA’s strategic partner KPA as part of the array of educational offerings available through the Mike Molino RV Learning Center.

Wayne Curtis, KPA’s director of Environment and Safety Operations, will explain the reasoning behind the increases and offers insights about the penalty policy across other agencies (DOT & EPA). This webinar will help dealership staff better understand risks and potential liabilities from regulatory fines should an inspection occur.

Webinars are provided by RVDA’s strategic partner KPA as part of the array of educational offerings available through the RV Learning Center.  For questions or feedback, contact Becky Ross at bross@kpaonline.com, 866.356.1735, or Karin Van Duyse at the RV Learning Center at kvanduyse@rvda.org, or 703.591.7130.
