New webpage collects public comments regarding MIOSHA proposal

State Rep. Ann Bollin today urged Livingston County residents to share their opposition to the Whitmer administration’s attempt to make emergency pandemic workplace rules permanent.

Michigan residents can now log on to https://gophouse.org/posts/whitmeremergency to fill out an online form and get their comments sent directly to the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA).

“In public, Gov. Whitmer claims she wants to end her statewide emergency rules,” said Bollin, of Brighton Township. “Yet, the governor and her administration are trying to exploit a temporary situation to permanently weigh hard-working Michiganders and local job providers down with more burdensome regulations.”

If MIOSHA’s rules become permanent, job providers would have to continue adhering to many of the temporary directives put in place during the pandemic – including face mask requirements for employees and customers, social distancing constraints, cleaning protocols, and limits on in-person work to the extent that work can be completed remotely. A full list of all the workplace requirements the Whitmer administration is seeking to make permanent is available here.

MIOSHA will hold a public hearing on the proposed rules on May 26. All public comments must be submitted to the webpage by 5 p.m. that day.
