Michigan is a “state plan” state; that is, it has a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program that covers both private and public sector (state and local government) workplaces. Workplace safety and health recordkeeping requirements in Michigan mirror the federal requirements, and the state has adopted recordkeeping requirements for bloodborne pathogen medical records and certain types of cranes and slings that are stricter than federal rules. Employers may use either the state’s forms for recording or reporting injuries and illnesses or the federal forms. See TABLE 1 for safety recordkeeping requirements.
See TABLE 2 for hazardous materials transportation recordkeeping requirements.
The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) enforces worker safety and health provisions. The Michigan Department of State Police (DSP) enforces the hazardous materials transportation regulations as they apply to motor carriers.
See the national section RECORDKEEPING for more information.
