Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Administration (VOSHA) Penalties
In the 2017 the Vermont Legislature amended 21 VSA §210 of the Vermont Occupational Safety and Health Act (VOSHA) to increase the penalties for VOSHA violations, similar to the federal OSH Act penalty increase. The legislation directed that the penalties be annually adjusted to reflect an increase in the Consumer Price Index, to remain consistent with the federal OSH Act. 21 VSA §210(a)(9). Penalty increases are calculated by the US Department of Labor which is to notify VOSHA each December. The increase is effective January 1 of each year after VOSHA publishes the new penalties.
This year VOSHA did not receive the federal OSHA penalty increase in time to publish prior to January 1st. Because of this, VOSHA has determined that the Vermont penalty increase will be effective for investigations commenced after February 1st, 2018.
