Violation Tracker Industries Ranked by Penalty Totals

Note: the totals here are derived only from entries matched to parent companies. They are adjusted to account for the fact that each parent's entries may include both agency records and settlement announcements for the same case; or else a penalty covering multiple locations may be listed in the individual records for each of the facilities.
