OCCUPATIONAL DISEASE REPORTING
As a result of Executive Orders No. 1996-1, 1996-2 and 2003-18 and Part 56 of P.A. 368 of 1978, a physician, hospital, clinic or employer must report known or suspected cases of occupational diseases or workplace aggravated health conditions to the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity within 10 days after discovery of the disease or condition on a report form furnished by the department. This requirement does not apply to occupational injuries.
The Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity has a contract with the Department of Medicine, Michigan State University, to assist in the compilation and reporting of Michigan occupational diseases. Additionally, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA), Part 164.512 authorizes agencies to collect and receive health information for the purpose of preventing and controlling diseases and related activities. Any inquiries regarding occupational reporting requirements should be directed to the MIOSHA Technical Services Division, Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, P.O. Box 30649, Lansing, Michigan, 48909-8149 or 517-284-7740.
