Do MIOSHA compliance officers and consultants uniformly interpret and implement standards?
The goal of MIOSHA is to have our Compliance Officers and our Consultation, Education and Training (CET) Consultants interpret and apply the MIOSHA standards consistently and uniformly. Many of our CET Consultants began their careers with MIOSHA in one of the compliance divisions. Those who have not go through extensive training to ensure as much as possible that standards are being applied consistently. All Compliance Officers and Consultants participate in ongoing training to help ensure consistency. The compliance divisions work closely with the CET Division, frequently attend each other's division training, attend similar ongoing training, and participate on consistency workgroups to help achieve this goal.
