LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched a new online dashboard for reporting workplace safety citations related to COVID-19.

See the dashboard here.

In addition to the full citation document and a brief description of the violations, the online resource will update where each citation is in the enforcement process, a news release said Friday.

It includes the following categories:

  • Citations abated, penalty paid, case closed
  • Awaiting abatement or penalty, case open
  • Under formal appeal
  • Citation vacated
  • Most recent

Updates will be made every Friday at 3 p.m.

State ambassadors say more than 90% of businesses visited are complying with mask, cleaning and disinfection and personal protective equipment requirements.

But they’ve also seen opportunities for continued education and improvement in employee training, record keeping, COVID-19 signage and written plan documents.

Employers can find COVID-19 safety resources here.
