On the ninth annual "Take a Stand Day" MIOSHA dedicated more than 125 professional staff to visit Michigan high-hazard industries targeted by the MIOSHA Strategic Plan.  

Each year more than 200 employers across the state sign up for the one-on-one consultations. There are no CITATIONS or FINES for participating workplaces. During the consultation visit, MIOSHA professionals "connect" cooperatively with the companies to recognize hazardous conditions and to effectively address safety and health issues.

"We are pleased to offer workplaces across the state the opportunity to partner with MIOSHA - without fear of fines or penalties - to improve the health and safety of their work environment," said MIOSHA Director Martha Yoder.  "We invited all Michigan employers to ‘Take a Stand' on August 14th and make worker safety and health a top priority."

If you missed “Take a Stand Day,” NO Penalty and NO Citation consultations are available every day from the MIOSHA Consultation Education & Training (CET) Division.
