According to OSHA, a "willful" violation is committed with the employer's intentional, knowing, or voluntary disregard for legal requirements or plain indifference to the safety and health of employees. On the other hand, a "serious violation" is one in which death or serious physical harm can result from a danger that the employer knew about or should have known about.
