ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implementations of administrative modifications to penalty formula in the U.S. which was endorsed by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administrator David Michaels. It notes that the Severe Violator Enforcement Program has the effect of raising the penalties for would-be violators. It is also noted that Michaels cited the July 2009 pipeline fatality case in Batesville, Texas as an example of why higher penalties are needed.
