A quick Google search makes it look like Gopher Resource brings in over $100,000,000 per year, so the fine was 0.3% of a single year's revenue. How does this give them any incentive whatsoever to fix the problems?

I agree that the fine seems small when you compare it to the revenues of Gopher but if you compare it to other OSHA fines it will be one of their largest fines given out this year.

If one of OSHA's largest fines was for a meaninglessly small amount then doesn't that seem to imply that OSHA fines are, generically, meaningless?

From Princess Bride, to DS9, to Crossing Jordan, to Eureka, you always bring a burst of joy to everything we see you in. It's always a delight to see you pop up!

What would you say is your favorite role other than the big ones that everyone knows?

Beyond the fine, what this means, is that OSHA will require Gopher to fix the issues that lead to those violations

They were "required" to prevent these issues from happening in the first place, too. If they simply decide to...not fix the issues, what penalties do they face?

You have correctly defined what “research” means. Well done.
