This was the 13th anniversary of “Take and Stand Day.” During this year’s event, 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.

“MIOSHA put out a call to action and the employer community responded,” said MIOSHA Acting Director Bart Pickelman. “The record-high participation in this year’s ‘Take a Stand’ Day demonstrates a strong commitment to protecting Michigan’s working men and women. We hope to see that number grow even more next year.”

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