Effective September 1, 2015, MIOSHA implemented the new injury reporting requirements in response to the changes federal OSHA made effective January 1, 2015. Employers in the state of Michigan will be required to report any work-related amputation, loss of an eye, or in-patient hospitalization of any employee, within 24 hours of the incident. Currently, employers must report the work-related in-patient hospitalization of three or more employees.
Employers can go to the MIOSHA Recordkeeping website to report an in-patient hospitalization, amputation, or loss of an eye incident or call the new injury report line: 844-464-6742. This system should NOT be used for reporting work related fatalities. All work-related fatalities must still be reported within eight hours to the current fatality line: 800-858-0397.
If you have any questions, please contact MIOSHA Information Services Section staff at 517-284-7788 or GLSTC to ask one of our Safety Specialists.
