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.
