Michigan bill bans ergo standard
Lansing, MI – Following through on a promise he made shortly after being elected, Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) on March 22 signed into law a bill prohibiting the promulgation of a workplace ergonomics standard within the state.
In his State of the State address Jan. 19, Snyder said he would stop efforts to create an ergonomics standard. Federal OSHA does not have an ergonomics standard. California, a state-run program, is the only state that does.
