Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules Both private and public sector employers are subject to state workplace safety and health requirements. The state has adopted the federal hazard communication, or worker right-to-know, requirements in their entirety. The state, however, has added some requirements that are stricter than federal standards for employee access to and posting of safety data sheets (SDSs)—formerly material safety data sheets (MSDSs)—identification of pipes, and disclosure of trade secret information. See the state topic MSDS/SDS for information about stricter state SDS requirements. See the national topic HAZARD COMMUNICATION STANDARD for detailed information about federal requirements.
For information on other occupational safety and health requirements in Michigan, see the national topic HAZWOPER and the state topic OSHA.
• Administration and enforcement. The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) administers and enforces hazard communication requirements in both private and public sector workplaces in Michigan.
