    Very intersting statistic on what facilities are getting citations/fines for BBP. I understand small facilities may still not have a good handle on this. The fact that none with 250 or more employees had any citations/fines is very surprizing.

    I agree, that is quite surprising. I have a feeling 0% is far underrepresented though. It could be that OSHA just isn’t targeting large hospitals like the smaller ones since they tend to have far more violations/issues.
