Serious workplace violation fines low

Marc Chase of The (Northwest Indiana) Times used OSHA data to investigate workplace safety violations. They found "that fines at or below the minimum are the rule, not the exception, in cases involving what OSHA considers serious violations. The average fine from 1991 to 2003 was $862.74 per serious violation, $637.26 less than the minimum of the penalty range during that time period."
