Health and Safety Grant


The State of Michigan is serious about helping businesses make health and safety improvements.  MIOSHA has $500,000 in available funds that will be used for matching grants awarded to businesses needing new safety equipment.  According to the State of MI website the MIOSHA Safety and Health Improvement Program (MiSHIP) will award employers that qualify a dollar-for-dollar match (up to $5000) for projects that reduce injury and illness risks to their employees. 


OSHA Injury Reporting Change


OSHA recently announced a revision to their rule on reporting severe injuries.  The new rule, effective January 1, 2015, states that OSHA must be notified with eight hours if a work related death occurs and within 24 hours if a work related hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye occurs.   This is a change from the current rule where eye loss, amputation and single worker hospitalization were not included.  Currently if a death occurs or if three or more employees are hospitalized an employer must let OSHA know.


Three Seconds to Safety


Looking both ways before crossing the street, buckling your seat belt, putting on an article of clothing or giving a kiss to a loved one, all of these are things that you can do in about three seconds.  What if taking three extra seconds in and out of the workplace could drastically affect your safety?  According to an blog article on, it can!


OSHA Electronic Recording


Back in December of 2013 we shared a blog about OSHA proposing a rule that would require companies with more than 250 employees to submit records electronically on a quarterly basis and companies with 20 employees or fewer in specific industries to submit electronically once a year.  The electronic data would be easily accessible to outside entities via OSHA’s website. 


Manufacturing Output Increase


Increasing manufacturing output is the topic of an interesting article this month in Food Manufacturing Magazine.  The article does a great job of giving practical ways to make production move quicker while still placing important emphasis on the well being of employees.  Phillip Odette suggests four ways to run a smooth efficient operation while still “celebrating the staff.”


OSHA Hazard Identification


Some hazards are pretty obvious; a large puddle in the middle of a work space, a broken ladder rung, an un-even piece of flooring or worn safety tread, all of these dangers may be easy to spot.  What about the hazards that might not be so easy to identify?  How will an employee or manager learn what to look for and how to keep everyone in the facility safe?  OSHA has developed an interactive training “game” to help facilities identify hazards.  This online tool is intended to teach the core process for finding safety risks as well as to raise awareness about the type of information and resources the OSHA website offers.  OSHA makes it very clear on their website that the Hazard Identification Training Tool is for training purposes only and possible citations and violations are not part of the tool.
