Changes to MIOSHA’s Recording and Reporting of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (Part 11) are coming soon!
by Bill Schneider
MIOSHA announced that beginning September 1, 2015, the state will implement the new federal injury reporting rules for severe injuries that became effective January 1st of this year. All Michigan employers will be required to report any work-related amputation, loss of an eye, or in-patient hospitalization of any employee, within 24 hours of the incident. Twenty-five additional industries have been included in these rules, too.
