Answer
Antonio,

OSHA can and does issue monetary citations to employers for violations pertaining to safety hazards. They do not penalize employees, although under paragraph 5(b) of the OSHA Act, the agency may...but that is a complicated matter altogether and best for a separate conversation.

I hope this helps, but feel free to follow up if you require more information.
