Data shown reflects Federal OSHA citations issued during the period October 2012 through September 2013.

Definitions

Data is included in the query based on the date the citation was issued.
  • #Cited represents the number of times the specified standard was cited. The number in the total line is the sum of the #Cited for each standard.
  • #Insp represents the number of inspections in which the specified standard was cited. For the total line, it represents the number of inspections in which one or more citations were issued. Note that the total is not the sum of the number of inspections associated with each standard cited: multiple standards may be cited in one inspection.
  • $Penalty represents the total penalty amount currently assessed for the specified (#cited) citations. The number in the total line is the sum of the $Penalty for each standard. The amounts reflect what exists at the current time, taking into consideration any settlement action adjustments which may have taken place.

Example

If #Cited = 120 and #Insp = 40, then the average number of times per inspection that the specified standard was cited is 3. If $Penalties is $60,000, then the average current penalty amount per standard cited is $500.
