Michigan Manufacturers' Guide To Environmental, Safety & Health Regulations
EGLE and the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs offers a reference guide that provides environmental and safety assistance to Michigan Facilities. The guide includes easy-to-read information about state and federal environmental laws and rules. It also contains direct phone numbers to agency experts. The guide begins with a self-assessment checklist to steer you through the requirements that affect your business. The cost of the guidebook is around $25 and it is distributed every other year at corresponding events called the Michigan Environmental Compliance Conference.
