The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) launched a new online resource in order to streamline workplace safety citations in the workplace. According to the administration, the resource is being created to increase transparency and provide more information related to COVID-19 safety violations.
According to an article, the dashboard includes these categories:
- Citations abated, penalty paid, case closed
- Awaiting abatement or penalty, case open
- Under formal appeal
- Citation vacated
- Most recent
The new MIOSHA coronavirus dashboard is updated each Friday at 3 P.M. Employees can find resources to keep their businesses safe with factsheets, educational videos and COVID-19 preparedness and response plans.
“There are a variety of programs that businesses can use to ensure they can comply, stay open and ultimately stay safe,” a press release from state said, “The MIOSHA Ambassador Program offers education and one-on-one guidance to help businesses understand regulations on workplace safety. Since the onset of the pandemic, through MIOSHA’s outreach and education, the agency is seeing strong implementation of these mitigation measures and has provided consultation to thousands of Michigan employers.”
