Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) violations are subject to per person penalties

01.11.09

OSHA’s new rules clarifying that Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) violations are subject to per person penalties take effect. In other words, according to the rule, “each covered employee is required to receive PPE and training and…each instance when an employee…does not receive the required PPE or training may be considered a separate violation subject to a separate penalty.” Given the number of employees that must receive PPE and training, it is important that you understand the possible financial implications of failing to comply with the existing rule requirements.
