NFIB Victories in Michigan!
MIOSHA Ergonomics Rules Killed
For almost ten years, NFIB took the lead on slowing down the
rule making process to keep MIOSHA (Michigan Occupational Safety and Health
Administration) at bay on a proposed “Michigan only” ergonomics rule that would
heap new paperwork and training requirements on small business. In January of
2011 those efforts were rewarded when Governor Rick Snyder announced that the
effort to draft the rule was dead and he signed legislation halting the
process. Had NFIB not led this fight, small employers in Michigan would have
had yet another bureaucratic requirement to contend with.
