I'm really glad that MIOSHA published the OSHA memorandum. I've been always checking up on their sites, with regards to the enforcement of the construction. I'm happy that they finally noticed the importance of the memorandum to the community. They are truly showing their value of the management and how it can affect employee performance. I only hope that they continue providing the best management until the following years.
