MIOSHA Hosting Two Days of Penalty-Free Site Visits Next Month
The tenth annual Take A Stand Day on Aug. 13 is for high-hazard industries targeted by the MIOSHA Strategic Plan, and Building Up Residential Safety Day occurs the following day.
The Michigan Occupational Safety & Health Administration (MIOSHA) is inviting employers statewide to participate in two days of site visits by the agency's staffers next month. The tenth annual "Take a Stand Day" will take place Aug. 13, with more than 125 MIOSHA compliance staffers, outreach consultants, managers, and supervisors providing one-on-one consultations when they visit Michigan high-hazard industries that are targeted by the MIOSHA Strategic Plan. The following day is "Building Up Residential Safety Day," when compliance and consultation staffers will visit residential work sites around the state. These visits will focus on specific hazards/areas as requested by the employers.
No citations or fines will be issued to participating workplaces, but participants in either day must agree to correct all serious conditions.
The deadline to apply to participate is July 23. To schedule a Take a Stand visit, complete a Request for Consultative Assistance form electronically and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
