The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specific safety standards for garden centers which help keep your employees safe. They perform random inspections and the last thing you want, is to not be ready or compliant when they do. Fines can be very expensive, starting from $12,000 and upwards of $126,000. The can actually charge you up to $12,000 per day the violation occurred and wasn’t resolved.
The best thing you can do is to have a safety plan already in place. You will not only avoid the costly fines for a violation, but your garden center will truly be a safe work environment for your employees.
