Enforcement and Appeals
Employers and employees have rights under the MIOSH Act. Employers have a responsibility to comply with MIOSHA standards. In order to ensure safe and healthy work environments, MIOSHA may investigate any work operation in Michigan with the exception of domestic employment, federal facilities, mining, and maritime. The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health (MIOSH) Act (Public Act 154 of 1974, as amended) requires enforcement of workplace safety and health standards. Workplace investigations are conducted by the Construction Safety and Health Division and the General Industry Safety and Health Division. Employers have appeal rights and options for penalty reductions through the PRA process. Read more in our brochure Enforcement and Appeals Overview.
