How Much Are The Fines Going To Be?

Fines vary too greatly to give any amount here. Even giving an average fine amount would not be indicative of the fine you may or may not receive, since some fines run very high for companies that are virtually disregarding safety. VOSH has always taken the position that the penalty structure provided under §40.1­49.4, Code of Virginia, is intended primarily to provide an incentive toward correcting violations voluntarily, not only to the offending employer, but also to other employers who may be in violation of the same infractions of the standards or regulations.
