Today’s Warner Employment News from the Law Shanty is brought to you by Steve Palazzolo and DeAndre’ Harris on the topic of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s enforcement of its Recording and Reporting of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Standard. In addition to certain reporting requirements, covered employers must post a summary of their work-related injuries and illnesses, known as Form 300A, in an area visible to employees. Such data must be posted between Feb. 1 − April 30. Additionally, covered employers must submit Form 300A through federal OSHA’s Injury Tracking Application by March 2. Historically, MIOSHA hasn’t strongly enforced the standard’s posting and submission requirements when inspecting workplaces. However, the tide is now turning and MIOSHA is handing out citations and penalties for covered employers’ noncompliance. DeAndre’ and Steve walk you through who qualifies as a covered employer, and what actions a covered employer should take to ensure compliance with the standard.
