Michigan Inspections : What you need to know

Comparison: State vs. Federal

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) rules for agency inspections of workplaces apply to the private and public sector (state and local government operations) in Michigan. The state has adopted self-inspection rules for cranes and portable ladders that are stricter than federal rules. State requirements for agency inspections of workplaces mirror federal rules. See TABLE 1 for state self-inspection requirements for safety.

State agencies are permitted and, in some cases, required to conduct inspections under state hazardous materials transportation laws. See TABLE 2 for state agency inspection requirements for hazardous materials motor carriers.

For additional information about federal inspection requirements, see the national section INSPECTIONS.

MIOSHA administers the occupational health and safety provisions of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Act, the Asbestos Abatement Contractor’s Licensing Act, and the Asbestos Worker’s Accreditation Act, including requirements for inspections.

The Michigan Department of State Police (DPS) enforces the hazardous materials transportation regulations in Michigan.
