Navy OSHA Citations

 FY 2012 through FY 2nd QTR 2014

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has authority to enter Navy facilities and issue citations when appropriate. Details of Navy citations may be viewed by clicking on the underlined numbers in the table below. Note: Private sector fine equivalents are included in the table for informational purposes only. OSHA does not impose fines on most Federal agencies, including the U.S. Navy. The Navy uses the OSHA citations posted on this website to identify program and implementation areas where improvements are needed and to perform trend analyses. OSHA expects employers (e.g., U.S. Navy) to learn from violations that have been "cited previously for a substantially similar condition."

Note: This information is updated quarterly from data received from OSHA. In the following types of violations, the term employer means the United States Navy:

Types of violations:

  • Willful:  A violation of a standard, regulation or the OSH Act where the employer knew that a hazardous condition existed but made no reasonable effort to eliminate it. A willful violation is intentional or committed through plain indifference to OSHA standards or to knowledge of the existence of a hazard.

  • Repeat: An employer may be cited for a repeated violation if that employer has been cited within the prior three years for a substantially similar condition and that citation has become a final order.

  • Serious: An OSHA violation from which there is a substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result.

  • Other-than-Serious:  A violation where a serious injury or illness is not likely to result from a hazardous condition but does have a direct and immediate relationship to employees' safety and health.
