We wished to make you aware of the latest expectations from MIOSHA on COVID-19. MIOSHA has a Coronavirus Disease 2019 Interim Enforcement Plan.
The agency is visiting facilities and is responding to any complaint calls it receives. The agency also is using the General Duty Clause Act to impose fines on those that are NOT following the Executive Orders (142 and 161) or the following MIOSHA requirements.
Per MIOSHA, all businesses with in-person operations shall do the following:
Develop COVID-19 Preparedness & Response Plan
Designate COVID-19 site supervisor
Provide employee COVID-19 training
Conduct daily entry self-screening protocol
Maintain six feet of social distancing
Provide non-medical face coverings & consider use of face shields
Develop response & notification plan for confirmed cases
Restrict non-essential business travel
Encourage use of PPE & hand sanitizer
Promote remote work
Adopt additional controls as necessary
Members should understand that this is a requirement and compliance is mandatory. If you do not have these provisions in place, you could be fined by MIOSHA.
If anyone needs support or help getting these documents around, please contact A.J. Hale of CompOne at 269-789-9166 (office), 269-339-1544 (cell) or email@example.com.
