a colleague advises that fed-OSHA is ramping-up with personnel to increase inspections and fines, purportedly the new administration's policy to increase its revenues. is anyone else hearing this?

Yes I believe so. I think I read it somewhere back from a news outlet. The new labor secretary wants it.

Nope - not true at all, the fines are meant as a deterrent only and to make sure that the employer does not get any ill gotten gains for shortcutting the policies & procedures that they should have followed. :rolleyes:

Yes, they are ramping up enforcement, but they can not say publically that they are using them to gain more revenues as it violates some federal law someplace
