Michigan has adopted workplace safety rules for foot protection that mirror federal rules (MAC r. 408.13383 to 408.13386) and additional provisions for toe protection that are stricter than federal rules.
The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth/Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) administers and enforces workplace safety and health standards for private and public sector workplaces in the state.
MAC r. 408.13384
Where toe protection other than safety toe footwear is worn, the toe protection shall have an impact value of not less than that required for the safety toe footwear. SANITATION
MAC r. 408.13385
Safety shoes and boots that are not worn over shoes and are worn by more than one employee must be maintained, cleaned, and sanitized inside and out before being issued to another employee. SPECIAL HAZARDS PROTECTION
MAC r. 408.13386
Where a hazard is created from a process, environment, chemical, or mechanical irritant that would cause an injury or impairment to the feet by absorption or physical contact, other than from impact, footwear (boots, overshoes, rubbers, wooden-soled shoes, or their equivalent) must be used.
