Michigan OSHA Issues COVID-19 Emergency Safety Rules

On October 14, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued its COVID-19-related emergency safety rules. The rules require employers in the state to assess exposure risk of employees, create a virus response plan, and establish cleaning and training procedures. Specific industries are also targeted for additional requirements; these include food processing, manufacturing, construction, retail, and restaurants and bars.


The rules went into effect immediately and will remain so for six months.
