MICHIGAN SAFETY AND HEALTHPROTECTION ON THE JOB	
THE MICHIGAN OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH ACT, 1974 P.A. 154, AS AMENDED, REQUIRES POSTING OF THIS DOCUMENT IN A CENTRAL AND 
CONSPICUOUS LOCATION.  FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN A PENALTY.	
The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Act (MIOSH Act), Act No. 154 of 
the Public Acts of 1974, as amended, provides job safety and health protection 
for Michigan employees through the maintenance of safe and healthful working 
conditions.  Under the MIOSH Act and a state plan approved in September 1973 
by the U.S. Department of Labor, the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic 
Opportunity is responsible for administering the Act.  Department representatives 
conduct job site inspections and investigations to ensure compliance with the Act 
and with safety and health standards.
The contents of this poster describe many important provisions of the Act.  These 
provisions apply equally to employers and employees in either private industry 
or the public sector.
EMPLOYER REQUIREMENTS: MIOSHA requires that each employer:
1.	
Furnish to each employee 	

employment and a place of employment which is
free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or
serious physical harm to the employee.
2.	
Comply with promulgated rules and standards and with orders issued
pursuant to the 	

Act.

or her employees informed of their protection and obligations under the Act,
including the provisions of applicable rules and standards.

24 hours 	

of all work-related inpatient hospitalizations, amputations and

Give the representative of 	

employees the opportunity to accompany the
department during the inspection or investigation of a place of employment and 
to prohibit the suffering of any loss of wages or fringe benefits or discriminate
against the representative of employees for time spent participating in the
inspection, investigation, or opening and closing conferences.

personal protective equipment, at the employer’s expense, when it
is specifically required by a MIOSHA standard.

equipment or engage in a process which has been tagged by the Department
and which is the subject of an order issued by the Department identifying that
an imminent danger exists.

o promptly notify an employee who was or is being exposed to toxic materials 
or harmful physical agents in concentrations or at levels which exceed those

INSPECTIONS/INVESTIGATIONS: Inspections and investigations are conducted 
by trained personnel.  The Act requires that an employer representative and a 
representative of employees be given an opportunity to accompany the department 
representative for the purpose of aiding in the inspection or investigat\

COMPLAINTS: Employees and employee representatives who believe that an 
unsafe or unhealthful condition exists in their workplace have the right to request 
an inspection by giving written notice to the Michigan Department of Labor and 
Economic Opportunity.  If a condition exists which may present an immediate 
danger, the Department should be notified in the most expedient manner without 
regard  to a written  notice.  The names  of complainants  will  be kept confidential 
and not revealed upon the request of the employee.  Employees also have the 
right to bring unsafe or unhealthful conditions to the attention of the department 
representative during the conduct of an inspection or investigation.
The Act provides that employees may not be discharged or in any manner 
discriminated against for filing a complaint or exercising any of their rights under 
the Act.  An employee who believes he or she has been discriminated against 
may  file  a  complaint  with  the  Michigan  Department  of  Labor  and  Economic 
Opportunity within 30 days of the alleged discrimination.
The U.S. Department of Labor is monitoring the operation of the Michigan 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) to assure the effective 
administration of the state act.  Any person may make a written complaint 
regarding the state administration of the state act directly to the Regional Office 
of OSHA, 230 South Dearborn, Chicago, Illinois 60604.
CITATIONS: If upon inspection or investigation the Michgan Department of 
Labor and Economic Opportunity believes that a requirement of the Act has been 
violated, a citation alleging such violation and setting a time period for correction 
will be issued to the employer.  The citation must be prominently posted at or near 
the place of the alleged violation for three days or until the violation is corrected, 
whichever is later.
The  Act  provides  for  first  instance  penalties  of  up  to  $7,000  for  a  violation. 
Penalties of up to $7,000 per day may be assessed for failure to correct a violation 
within a proposed abatement period.  Any employer who willfully or repeatedly 
violates  the  Act  may  be  assessed  penalties  of  up  to  $70,000  for  each  such 
violation.  Employers may appeal the alleged citation, the proposed penalties or 
the abatement periods to the Department and to the Board of Health and Safety 
Compliance and Appeals.  Employees may appeal the abatement period in a 
similar manner. Employees also may appeal to the Board of Health and Safety 
Compliance and Appeals any decision issued by the Department in response to 
an employer appeal.
Criminal penalties also are provided for in the Act. A person who knowingly makes 
a false statement or report pursuant to the Act upon conviction is punishable by 
a  fine  of  up  to  $10,000  or  may  be  imprisoned  for  not  more  than  6  months  or 
both.  Any willful violation resulting in death of an employee, upon conviction, is 
punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or by imprisonment for not more than one 
year or both.  A second conviction doubles the maximum monetary penalty and 
is punishable by imprisonment for up to three years.
