— Michigan Teamsters Joint Council #43 President Greg Nowak

MIOSHA Issues New COVID-19 Workplace Safety “Emergency Rules”
New “Emergency Rules” have been issued by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) to protect Michigan working families during the continuing COVID-19 Pandemic.
Michigan Teamsters are encouraged to review the new rules and look to the posted guidelines by industry.
These rules largely mirror requirements that MIOSHA has been enforcing using the general duty clause based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and OSHA, as well as the governor’s Executive Orders. MIOSHA has updated all of these presentations on the COVID Workplace Safety website.
DHHS has used their authority to cover more transient issues like capacity, customer masking requirements, non-workplace environments, etc., so you will not find those pieces in the MIOSHA rules.
