Beginning 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.
