15th Annual "Take a Stand Day"

Across the state of Michigan on Wednesday, August 14, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) invites employers to “Take a Stand” for workplace safety and health.

On this 15th annual “Take a Stand Day,” MIOSHA is dedicating more than 125 professional staff to visit Michigan high-hazard industries targeted by the MIOSHA Strategic Plan. The MIOSHA program is part of the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).

MIOSHA safety and health professionals — including compliance staff, outreach consultants, managers, and supervisors — have been scheduled on “Take a Stand Day” to provide one-on-one consultations. There will be no citations or fines for participating workplaces. However, participants must agree to correct all serious conditions.
