MIOSHA Consultative Services
3 Easy Ways to Get MIOSHA Consultative Assistance:
Types of Consultative Services
Michigan employers may request a voluntary MIOSHA inspection of their workplace (full or partial) without the attachment of fines or penalties. These on-site consultations are conducted by occupational safety consultants or industrial hygienists in the CET onsite consultation section. Employers must agree, prior to the start of this inspection, to correct all serious violations found during the voluntary inspection. Currently, priority for participation in this program is given to manufacturing and construction employers with less than 250 employees. Other requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Upon employer request, the CET Division conducts a non-enforcement hazard survey of an employer's site (full or partial). The hazard survey is a training tool which affords the employer and selected employees the opportunity to learn how to identify unsafe or unhealthy acts or conditions and MIOSHA violations. The hazard survey results in formulating ways to correct any noted deficiencies.
The Self-Help Program assists small employers, typically with 250 employees or less, in conducting evaluations of hazardous exposures in their workplaces. This free service provides limited technical industrial hygiene guidance, monitoring and measuring equipment, sample analyses and general information. High-hazard industries will be given priority. High hazard is determined by matching the employer's primary or secondary North American Industrial Classification (NAICS) system code to a NAICS code list of current high-hazard industries.
