MIOSHA Cites Nine Businesses Coronavirus-related Violations

MIOSHA issued citations with fines ranging $400 to $3,500.

Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) issued general duty COVID-19 citations to nine Michigan businesses on December 4, according to Upper Michigan's Source.

Businesses such as Lane Automotive, Andersons Service Center and United States Lighting were cited for failing to take precautions that protect workers from COVID-19. MIOSHA’s general duty clause, which requires employers to create a hazard-free workplace, has a citation fine of up to $7,000.

The companies that were cited failed to initiate health screenings, enforce the use of face coverings and implement cleaning measures that are up to par for coronavirus prevention. They have 15 business days to contest the violations and adhere to the necessary suggestions.
