Why Should Our Company Comply With Regulatory Agencies When The Citation Cost Could Be Less Money?

PROtect is often asked why companies should comply with regulatory agencies when citation costs could be less money. However, such a viewpoint is not considering the big picture.

If a company is found to have been in non-compliance and a fatality occurs, there will likely be a multi-million dollar civil lawsuit to follow, brought by the family of the deceased.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, “There were a total of 5,147 fatal work injuries recorded in the United States in 2017.” In addition, millions of non-fatal work injuries occur each year.

“It is recommended that companies comply with regulatory agencies even if it seems like the citation could be less money,” said Nathan Vander Griend, President of PROtect. “Citation costs are just a guide but could be the tip of the iceberg in terms of financial cost.”
