COMPLETION OF PROPOSED PENALTY WORKSHEET

P&P C-10
Issue Date: 6/2/92
Revised: 8/1/94, 2/1/95,1/1/00,7/6/04

AUTHORITY: California Labor Code Sec. 6317, 6319, 6427 et seq. and Title 8 California Code of Regulations Sec. 333 et seq.

POLICY: It is the policy of the Division of Occupational Safety and Health to assess a civil penalty for each serious, repeat, willful, failure-to-abate violation and for the following regulatory violations: failure to report carcinogen use; failure of a physician to report a pesticide-related illness; failure to conform to asbestos-related registration requirements, and failure to obtain a construction activity permit. Penalties for general and regulatory violations, which are not listed above, will also be proposed unless a Notice in lieu of a citation is issued by the Division in accordance with Labor Code §6317 and P&P C-4. PROCEDURES:

A. RESPONSIBILITIES

  1. Compliance Personnel Responsibilities

    1. All violations found during a workplace inspection shall be entered on the Cal/OSHA Form 10 (Proposed Penalty Worksheet) and all civil penalties proposed for those violations shall be calculated and entered on the Cal/OSHA Form 10 by the compliance personnel who conducted the inspection. The Cal/OSHA Form 10 does not have to be completed for an inspection which resulted in violations for which no civil penalties are proposed.
    2. The Cal/OSHA Form 10 shall be used as a worksheet to calculate the proposed penalty. For ease of arithmetic calculation, refer to Attachments A and B which set forth matrixes for every possible gravity-based penalty and penalty adjustment factors for general, regulatory and serious violations.

  2. District Manager Responsibilities

    1. Office-Issued Citations The District Manager shall review, prior to issuance of proposed civil penalties, the penalty calculations contained on the Cal/OSHA Form 10 to ensure that the violation for which a civil penalty is proposed is properly classified and that the civil penalty is calculated in accordance with the procedures found in P&P C-10 and is arithmetically correct.
    2. Field-Issued Citations The District Manager shall review the penalty calculations contained on the Cal/OSHA Form 10 as soon as possible after field issuance to ensure that the violation for which a civil penalty was proposed was properly classified and that the civil penalty was calculated in accordance with the procedures found in P&P C-10 and is arithmetically correct.
    3. Amended Citations When a classification or calculation error is noted on an office or field-issued citation, the District Manager shall provide the employer with an amended citation correcting the error. The amended citation shall be issued prior to the original citation becoming a final order of the Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board. However, once an employer files an appeal of the citation and the appeal has been docketed, civil penalties and citations can only be amended by motion to the Appeals Board.
      NOTE: The date the employer's appeal is docketed can be determined by telephoning the Appeals Board's Docketing Clerk.

  3. Regional Manager Responsibilities The Regional Manager shall monitor civil penalty assessments throughout the Region to ensure consistent application of the procedures found in P&P C-10.

B. SPECIFIC VIOLATIONS

  1. Regulatory Violation

    There are seven types of regulatory violations for which the following gravity-based penalties are required and shall be entered in Item 12 on the Cal/OSHA Form 10:

    1. Failure of the employer to report a serious injury or illness, or death ($5000);
    2. Failure to report carcinogen use ($2500 for each carcinogen);
    3. Carcinogen, other than reporting ($1000);
    4. Failure of a physician to report a pesticide-related illness ($250);
    5. Failure to conform to asbestos-related registration requirements ($1250);
    6. Failure to obtain a construction activity permit ($1250); and
    7. Any other non-carcinogen or non-pesticide-related illness not categorized above ($500), e.g, failure to post or failure to report injury or illness illness by a responding governmental agency.

    NOTE: All of the above types of regulatory violations shall be adjusted for Good Faith, Size and History, except for the failure of a physician to report a pesticide-related illness and failure of the employer to report a serious injury or illness, or death.

  2. General Violation

    1. For each general violation, a civil penalty shall be proposed based on the severity, extent and likelihood of the violation. See P&P C-1B for the criteria to be used in determining the severity, extent and likelihood of a violation.
    2. Civil penalties for general violations are as follows:

      1. Severity

        1. Low $1000
        2. Medium $1500
        3. High $2000

      2. Extent -- Modification Factor

        1. Low - 25% of severity
        2. Medium 0
        3. High + 25% of severity

      3. Likelihood -- Modification factor

        1. Low - 25% of severity
        2. Medium 0
        3. High + 25% of severity

    3. Penalties for general violations may be waived if the employer at the time of the Division's inspection was making a good faith effort to abate the alleged violation pursuant to written recommendations of the Cal/OSHA Consultation Service (8 CCR Sec. 336(d)(4)(A)). When the penalty for an Item is waived, enter "Penalty Waived-Consultation" on Item 9 through 11.

      NOTE: Examples of acceptable evidence of good faith effort include a timely attempt to abate the violation, copies of purchase orders for equipment to correct violative conditions and written instructions to modify, revise or direct procedures or processes to correct violative conditions.

  3. Serious Violation

    1. For each serious violation, a civil penalty shall be proposed based on the severity, extent and likelihood of the violation. See P&P C-1B (Documentation Worksheet) for the criteria to be used in determining the severity, extent and likelihood of a violation. There are two types of serious violations for purposes of proposing civil penalties:

      1. Serious (Non-carcinogen)
      2. Serious (Carcinogen)

    2. Civil penalties for serious violations based on severity, extent and likelihood are as follows:

      1. Severity

        1. Serious (Non-carcinogen) -- -- $18,000 (Gravity-Based Penalty)

          NOTE: In determining the gravity-based penalty for a serious (non-carcinogen) violation that the Division determines caused a death or a serious injury, illness or exposure, the adjustments to the severity-based penalty for extent and likelihood shall only be rated as moderate or high, and in no case shall the gravity-based penalty be less than $18,000. Further reductions to the gravity-based penalty shall not be made for any reason other than the size of the employer being cited.

        2. Serious (Carcinogen) -- $2000

        3. NOTE: The total civil penalty for serious carcinogen violations is $2000 and shall not be modified or adjusted for any reason.

      2. Extent -- Modification Factor

        1. Low - 25% of severity
        2. Medium 0
        3. High + 25% of severity

      3. Likelihood -- Modification factor

        1. Low - 25% of severity
        2. Medium 0
        3. High + 25% of severity

  4. Repeat Violation

    1. Minimum and Maximum Penalties

      1. The maximum penalty for any repeat violation shall not exceed $70,000

        NOTE: Any employer who is cited for a repeat violation of any occupational safety or health standard, order or special order, or Section 25910 of the Health and Safety Code, shall not receive any adjustment of the penalty for History or Good Faith.
      2. If a regulatory, general or serious violation is a repeat violation, the gravity-based penalty shall be multiplied by the following factors:

        Repeat Factor
        1st 2
        2nd 4
        3rd or more 10

    2. For Carcinogens

      1. Repeat Regulatory Violations Concerning a Carcinogen Reporting Requirement
        If the repeat regulatory violation concerns a carcinogen reporting requirement, the penalty shall be proposed as follows:

        Repeat Amount
        1st $5,000
        2nd $10,000
        3rd or more $20,000

        NOTE: Penalties for initial failure to report carcinogen violations are subject to adjustment for Good Faith, Size and History. Penalties for repeat failure to report carcinogen violations are not subject to adjustment for Good Faith, Size and History. When calculating the penalty for repeat regulatory violations concerning a carcinogen reporting requirement, transfer the penalty amount in Item 13 to Item 18 on the Cal/OSHA Form 10.

      2. Repeat Serious Violations Respecting the Use of A Carcinogen
        If the repeat serious violation concerns the use of a carcinogen, the penalty shall be proposed as follows:

        Repeat Amount
        1st $10,000
        2nd $20,000
        3rd or more $40,000

        NOTE: Penalties for repeat serious violations for use of a carcinogen are not subject to adjustment Good Faith, Size and History.

    3. Violation Causing Death or Serious Injury, Illness or Exposure
      If the Division determines that a repeat violation caused death or serious injury, illness or exposure, the gravity-based penalty shall not be reduced for any reason other than the size of the employer being cited.

  5. Willful Violation

    1. General Issues
      If a regulatory, general or serious violation is determined to be willful, the proposed penalty is multiplied by 5.
    2. Minimum and Maximum Penalty

      1. The minimum penalty for any willful violation shall not be less than $5,000.
      2. The maximum penalty for any willful violation shall not exceed $70,000.

    3. Violation Causing Death or Serious Injury, Illness or Exposure If the Division determines that a willful violation caused death or serious injury, illness or exposure, the gravity-based penalty shall not be reduced for any reason other than the size of the employer being cited.

  6. Abatement Credit

    1. Regulatory

      An abatement credit shall not be granted for any regulatory violation.

    2. General and Serious

      The gravity-based penalty for general and serious violations is reduced by 50% on the presumption that the employer will correct the violations by the abatement date. The resultant penalty is termed a "proposed penalty."

      An abatement credit shall not be granted for the following types of violations:

      1. General and serious violations designated as repeat or willful;
      2. Serious violations where extent and likelihood are rated high;
      3. Serious violations respecting the use of a carcinogen; and
      4. Serious violations causing death, serious injury, illness or exposure.

  7. Failure to Abate

    1. General Issues

      1. All civil penalty calculations for failure to abate a previously cited violation are to be performed on the original Cal/OSHA Form 10.
      2. When civil penalties are issued for failure- to-abate, the District Manager shall send a cover letter to the employer with the IMIS Form 2B (Notification of Failure to Abate Alleged Violations) specifying the following:

        1. The items previously cited which are still in violation; and
        2. The requirement that the employer immediately abate the previously cited items which are still in violation.

        NOTE: The failure to abate information on the Cal/OSHA Form 10 shall be used to complete the IMIS Form 2B.

      3. The daily penalty for failure to abate a regulatory or general violation may be further reduced up to 90% for the first 120 days that the violation continues to exist and up to 50% thereafter where the violation does not bear a direct relationship to employee health and safety.
        EXCEPTION: If the severity of the violation is high and exposure to employees is continuous, or the employer has exhibited a high degree of negligence in failing to correct the violation, the penalty shall not be further reduced.
      4. The daily penalty for failure to abate a serious violation may be reduced up to 50% where extent and likelihood are calculated as low and the Good Faith and History are calculated as Good, except where the gravity of the violation is high and exposure to employees is continuous, or the employer has exhibited a high degree of negligence in failing to correct the violation.

    2. Failure-to-Abate Penalties

      1. Maximum Daily Penalty

        Penalties for a failure-to-abate violation shall not exceed $15,000 per day [8 CCR Sec. 336(f)].

      2. Regulatory Failure To Abate

        To calculate the failure-to-abate penalty for regulatory violations, start with the gravity-based penalty in Item 12 of the Cal/OSHA Form 10 and then complete Items 19 through 26. See Section F. Forms Completion.

      3. General Failure to Abate

        To calculate a failure-to-abate general violation, see Section F. (Forms Completion), Items 19 through 26.

      4. Serious Failure to Abate

        1. For any employer who submits a signed statement affirming compliance with the abatement terms for a serious violation and has been found upon reinspection not to have abated the violation, the additional civil penalty for failure to abate shall not be adjusted for Good Faith of the employer or History of previous violations.
        2. If the Division determines that death or serious injury, illness or exposure was caused by failure to abate a serious violation within the time permitted for its abatement, the penalty shall not be reduced for any reason other than the Size of the business of the employer being charged.

C. SPECIAL PENALTY PROVISIONS

  1. Violation of a Crane Standard, Order, or Special Order Causing Death or Serious Injury

    1. If a violation of a crane standard, order, or special order is classified as repeat serious or repeat willful, and the Division has determined that the violation caused death or serious injury as defined pursuant to Labor Code Sec. 6302, the penalty shall be $140,000. This penalty is not subject to adjustment.
    2. If the employer fails to abate a serious violation of a crane standard, order, or special order, and the Division has determined that the failure to abate caused death or serious injury as defined pursuant to Labor Code Sec. 6302, the penalty shall be $14,000 for each calendar day. This penalty is not subject to adjustment.

  2. Serious Tower Crane Violations

    For any employer who violates any tower crane standard, order or special order, and such violation is determined to be a serious violation, the Division shall propose a civil penalty of $2,000. This penalty is not subject to adjustment for Good Faith, Size and History. If Items 13 through 18 are applicable, follow the instructions for regulatory violations (Non- carcinogen/pesticide-related illness). If Items 19 through 26A are applicable, follow the instructions for serious (Carcinogen) violations.

  3. Field Sanitation Violations

    If a violation of 8 CCR Sec. 3457(c)(1)(A), (c)(1)(B), (c)(1)(C), (c)(2)(A), (c)(2)(B), (c)(3)(B), (c)(3)(C), (c)(3)(G)(1), (c)(3)(G)(2) and (c)(3)(G)(3) is classified as general, the penalty shall be $750. This penalty is not subject to adjustment. If Items 13 through 26A are applicable, follow the procedures for repeat, willful or failure to abate general violations. If the foregoing violations are classified as serious, follow the procedure for Serious (Noncarcinogen). However, the minimum civil penalty for any serious violation shall be no less than $750.

  4. Discretionary Penalty Reduction for Multiple Violations Pertaining to a Single Hazard.

    1. Under certain circumstances 8 CCR Sec. 336(k) permits the Division to reduce penalties for multiple violations based on a single hazard. Generally, the purpose of this section is to permit reduction of penalties based on the same hazard on a case- by-case basis, where the amount of the cumulative total would be unfair given the magnitude of the violations, or where a lower amount would be sufficient to further compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act.
    2. This penalty reduction does not apply to the following:

      1. Violations which have resulted in death or serious injury, or illness.
      2. Serious carcinogen violations.
      3. All other violations which have resulted in serious exposure.
      4. Willful violations.
      5. Any employer who does not have an operative Injury and Illness Prevention Program at the time of the inspection.

      NOTE: A reduction can be applied to repeat or failure-to-abate penalties which are not disqualified by Items (1) through (5), but only under extraordinary circumstances and only with the written approval of the Deputy Chief for Field Operations.

    3. To apply the discretionary reduction, determine which violations are based on a single hazard. The violation bearing the highest penalty shall not be reduced. Penalties for the remaining violations based on the same hazard may be reduced as follows:

      1. For serious violations not involving a serious exposure, the penalty may be reduced up to 90%.
      2. For regulatory and general violations, the civil penalty may be reduced up to 100%, except where a minimum civil penalty is mandated by law.

    4. For each penalty to be reduced, compute and enter the unreduced penalty through Item 17. Enter the reduced penalty in Item 18 and place an asterisk next to the amount entered. Reference the asterisk in the upper left hand corner of the form with the following note:

      *Discretionary penalty reduction, as permitted in Sec. 336(k) "multiple violations pertaining to a single hazard."

  5. Injury and Illness Prevention (IIP) Program Violations

    1. Penalty Exemption for New Employer in the State

      No civil penalty shall be proposed for any new employer in the State for a period of one year after the date the new employer establishes a business in the State for a regulatory or general violation of 8 CCR Sec. 3203 if the employer has made a good faith effort to comply with the requirements found in Sec. 3203.

    2. Model IIP Program for Non-High Hazard Employment

      No civil penalty shall be proposed for an employer who adopts, posts and implements in good faith, the Model Injury and Illness Prevention Program for Non-High Hazard Employment prepared by the Division pursuant to Labor Code 6401.7(j)(1) for a first violation of 8 CCR Sec. 3203. See P&P C-45A.

  6. Governmental Entities

    Governmental entities are not exempt from the imposition of civil penalties.
