    Michigan Manufacturers' Guide To Environmental, Safety & Health Regulations

    The Michigan Departments of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs offer assistance to Michigan manufacturers facing the challenges of daily business regulations.  The two Departments have designed a first-of-its-kind users guide.  Packed full of easy-to-read discussions about state and federal environmental rules, the "Michigan Manufacturers' Guide to Environmental and Safety' and Health Regulations" also summarizes the MIOSHA programs that affect manufacturers of all sizes.  The book begins with a self-assessment checklist to steer you through the regulations that affect your business.

    A program specialist produces each chapter of the book.  Along with easy-to-read overviews of relevant regulations, there are telephone numbers that put you in direct contact with the agency experts who may be of assistance.  You will also learn which current web sites display the latest regulatory information.

    We realize how complex and voluminous government regulations can be for a business.  We also understand the huge responsibility one faces to keep the environment clean, the works safe, and the business profitable.  Let the "Michigan Manufacturers' Guide to Environmental and Safety and Health Regulations" help meet this purpose.

    The cost of the guidebook will be approximately $25 that will be distributed at workshops held across the state.  At the workshops, DEQ and LARA staff will explain how to use the book, provide an overview of some of the common standards and regulations applicable to manufacturers, and answer questions.

    If interested in attending a workshop or ordering the guidebook, please call the Environmental Assistance Center at (800) 662-9278 for further information.
