MIOSHA Relaxes COVID Workplace Rules For Non-Health Care Settings

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) filed a new set of coronavirus emergency rules today to align with the federal OSHA rules released earlier this month by the Biden administration. The rules rescind the MIOSHA guidance released on May 24 and remove all requirements for employees, outside of healthcare settings, to wear masks or maintain social distancing. The new rules are effective through December 22 and simply link to the OSHA rules.
With the change, non-healthcare employers are no longer required to keep mask-wearing, daily health screenings, and distancing measures in place. Employers would have the option to use their own judgment, a release from MIOSHA said today.
MIOSHA urged employers to follow existing federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and OSHA recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
