MIOSHA Launches New Site for COVID-19 Workplace Safety

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) within the Dept. of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) launched a new online COVID-19 Workplace Safety site – Michigan.gov/COVIDWorkplaceSafety – the site provides guidance and a toolkit of resources to keep workplaces safe as sectors of the state’s economy reopen. 

With the continued risk of COVID-19 spread, everyone in the workplace must take necessary precautions. The site includes MIOSHA issued guidelines, posters for employees and customers, factsheets, educational videos and a reopening checklist – all of which will help businesses safely  reopening their doors.  

“As we reengage our economy and begin the long road back to our normal routines, it’s critical that we do so safely,” LEO Director Jeff Donofrio said. “Michigan.gov/COVIDWorkplaceSafety is designed to make the process of reopening safely easier and equip businesses and their staff with the resources necessary to protect themselves from the spread of COVID-19.” 

In addition to the general workplace guidelines for employer and employees, MIOSHA provided further clarification on necessary steps several other sectors must take when reopening, including:  

The site also provides guidance on how employers create and make available to employees and customers, a written exposure control plan which includes exposure determination and outlines measures that will be taken to prevent employee exposure to COVID-19, including as appropriate:

“Our first priority is to protect workers from the spread of COVID-19,” MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman said. “Employers, employees, and customers who follow these guidelines will help ensure that everyone returns home safe at the end of the day.”  

Those with questions regarding workplace safety and health may contact MIOSHA using the new hotline at 855-SAFEC19 (855-723-3219)

To report health and safety concerns in the workplace, go to michigan.gov/MIOSHAcomplaint.
