Communication of Inspection Findings


I.      Purpose. This instruction establishes uniform policies and procedures for communicating
        the inspection findings to the employer, complainant, and source of the referral.
        Communicating this information is a service provided by the Michigan Occupational
        Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) to its customers. It is a requirement of the
        Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Act (MIOSH Act). It also helps to fulfill
        MIOSHA Strategic Plan Goal 3.1 for 2004-2008, which is to foster program excellence
        and confidence through effective delivery of MIOSHA services.

II.     Scope. This instruction applies to inspections conducted by the Construction Safety and
        Health Division and the General Industry Safety and Health Division.

Communication of Inspection Findings

IV.   Background. Prior to this instruction, differences existed among compliance safety and
      health officers (CSHOs) in how inspection findings were communicated. The biggest
      difference was that industrial hygienists prepared a written report for the employer, while
      safety officers did not. The industrial hygienists used the report to communicate
      recommendations, and safety officers used a safety recommendation form. This
      instruction establishes a set of consistent policies and procedures.

      Five types of inspection-findings information need to be communicated. They are
      citations, recommendations, results of environmental monitoring and measurements (in
      the form of data sheets), findings on the complaint and referral issues, and supplemental
      information such as additional explanation of the rules. The recipients of this information
      are the employer, employees, employee representatives, the complainant, source of the
      referral, and other interested parties.

      Most of the policies and procedures outlined in Section V, Action Required, of this
      instruction are not new. They are merely a restatement of pre-existing requirements. The
      main changes are (1) the Inspection Findings for Complaint and Referral Issues form
      (IFCRI form) will be used by CSHOs to relate inspection findings for complaint and
      referral issues, (2) recommendations will be issued using a safety and health
      recommendations form, and (3) the written report of industrial hygienists is eliminated.
      Much of this instruction focuses on how to complete the IFCRI form.

V.    Action Required.

      A.     Ongoing Conversation. An inspection is an on-going conversation between the
             CSHO and the employer and employees. The conversation begins at the opening
             conference and continues through the walkaround to any meetings and interviews,
             reviews of written records and programs, and the closing conference. The CSHO
             shall use this on-going conversation to provide the employer and employees with
             inspection information.

             To update the employer on the status of the inspection, a CSHO can choose to
             have a short meeting at the end of each day on-site. Alternatively, the CSHO can
             wait until the closing conference before summarizing the inspection findings to
             ensure that the findings are more accurate and complete. The CSHO can also
             verbally communicate hazards identified as they are determined during the course
             of the day, to ensure that hazards are addressed at the earliest possible
             opportunity. Issues related to imminent danger are addressed in Section V.C.
             below.

      B.     Status Conference. During Joint Inspections, if either safety or health issues
             require a longer time to evaluate than the other part of the inspection, the first
             compliance officer who finishes his/her part of the inspection is to conduct a
             Status Conference (summarizing inspection findings to date) when his/her portion
             of the inspection is completed. This procedure is also followed for Intra-Office
             Assistance Request Inspections and One-MIOSHA Inspections.

Communication of Inspection Findings

      C.     Imminent Danger Notification. When the CSHO concludes, on the basis of an
             inspection, that conditions or practices exist in a place of employment which
             could reasonably be expected to cause death or serious physical harm
             immediately or before the imminence of such danger can be eliminated through
             the enforcement procedures otherwise provided by the Act, the CSHO shall
             inform the employer and affected employee of the danger. Imminent danger
             procedures are described in more detail in Rule 1342 of Part 13, Inspections and
             Investigations, Citations and Proposed Penalties, and Section 31 of the Michigan
             Occupational Safety and Health Act.

      D.     Closing Conference. Following the completion of the inspection, an opportunity
             for a closing conference shall be afforded to the employer and employee
             representatives to informally advise them of any apparent safety or health
             violations disclosed by the inspection. Our findings on the complaint and referral
             are discussed at the closing conference.

             The requirement for the closing conference is found in Rule 1325(5) of Part 13.
             More detail on the closing conference can be found in the Field Operations
             Manual. Closing conferences for Joint Inspections, Intra-Office Assistance
             Request Inspections, and One-MIOSHA Inspections are described in Instruction
             GISHD-COM-05-3.

      E.     Letter to Employer. After the inspection, the Division will mail a letter to the
             employer informing the employer of the results of the investigation. The letter
             will state whether or not the inspection resulted in any citations or
             recommendations. The letter will include the following enclosures, as applicable:

             1.     Citations.

             2.     Recommendations. The Safety/Health Recommendations form shall be
                    used for recommendations. The form is in Appendix A.

             3.     Data Sheets. Data sheet forms are available for air contaminants, noise,
                    material samples, electromagnetic radiation, heat stress, illumination, and
                    ventilation.

             4.     Inspection Findings for Complaint and Referral Issues form (IFCRI form).
                    For complaint and referral inspections, the IFCRI form is to be completed.
                    The guidelines for completing the form are in Section VI of this
                    instruction.

             5.     Supplemental Information. Supplemental information includes the
                    MIOSH Act, standards, summaries of standards, MIOSHA safety and
                    health handouts, Construction Fact Sheets, ventilation specifications,
                    sample programs, and information on specific hazards.

Communication of Inspection Findings

      In a few unique cases, with the approval of the Division Director, a longer letter to the
      employer similar to the old “report” of industrial hygienists can be sent to the employer.
      The longer letter would go over the inspection issues in detail rather than serving as
      mainly a cover letter for the enclosures.

      A copy of the letter to the employer and enclosures 1-4 above is mailed to the
      complainant, source of the referral, and other interested parties, such as the union and off-
      site management safety and health representatives.

      F.     Informal Conference. At the request of an affected employer, employee, or
             employee representative, the Division may hold an informal conference with the
             purpose of discussing any issues raised by an inspection, citation, or notice of
             proposed penalty. This informal conference is described in more detail in Rule
             1361 of Part 13.

      G.     Michigan Freedom of Information Act. The Michigan Freedom of Information
             Act provides all persons, except those incarcerated in correctional facilities, with
             access to public records. This includes case files of inspections.

      H.     Supplemental Information. As stated above, supplemental information is
             enclosed in the letter to the employer. Other options for distributing this
             information are: providing the information to the employer and employee
             representatives during the on-site inspection; referring them to the MIOSHA
             website to view, download, or print the documents; or emailing them the Internet
             links to these documents.

VI.   Guidelines for Completing the IFCRI Form.

      A.     General.

             1.      The IFCRI form provides the inspection findings for the safety and health
                     hazards alleged in the complaint and referral. Each complaint and referral
                     item is addressed individually. For each item, the alleged hazard is
                     entered, followed by the inspection findings. Appendix B is a template of
                     the IFCRI form. At the top of the form, the CSHO will enter basic
                     identifying information about the inspection: the establishment name,
                     establishment address, inspection number, complaint or referral number,
                     CSHO ID, and inspection date(s). Appendix C has examples of the
                     completed form.

             2.      The CSHO will fill out the IFCRI form for complaint and referral
                     inspections. Other types of inspections—programmed/scheduled,
                     accident, fatality, catastrophe, and follow-up—will not have an IFCRI
                     form.

             3.     The IFCRI form will cover the hazards described in the complaint and
                    referral. Other hazards identified in complaint and referral inspections
                    will not be covered on the IFCRI form; they will be addressed only with
                    citations and recommendations.

             4.     The completed IFCRI form becomes part of the case file. It serves as a
                    summary of the CSHO’s findings on the complaint and referral. There is
                    no need to duplicate this information elsewhere in the case file.

             5.     The form must not include information that can identify the complainant
                    (e.g., their name, machine number, exact date of injury, job title if only a
                    few employees have that job title), unless the complainant wants their
                    name revealed. Instead of the complainant’s name, use an employee or
                    employees. The example below is for the Alleged Hazard field (the name
                    of the complainant is Joe Pirelli).

                    WRONG:         Joe Pirelli was not provided training on lock out/tag out
                                   procedures.
                    CORRECT:       Employees were not provided training on lock out/tag out
                                   procedures.

             6.     Names of employees and management are not to be used on the form.
                    Instead, use an employee, employees, a worker, workers, their job title,
                    manager, management representative, etc. The example below is for the
                    Inspection Findings section.

                    WRONG:         Frank Mannheim, Charles Rojas, and Kristin Byrne stated
                                   they had not received hazard communication training on
                                   the chemicals they use.
                    CORRECT:       According to the worker interviews, spray-painters have
                                   not received hazard communication training on the
                                   chemicals they use.

             7.     Use complete sentences whenever possible. The public may not
                    understand the phrases and shorthand of CSHOs.

             8.      Because safety supervisors determine the citation numbers and item
                    numbers, the safety officer would enter the worksheet number on the
                    IFCRI form, and the safety supervisor upon review would change the
                    worksheet number to the citation number and item number.

             9.     All parties that process the IFCRI form (CSHO, supervisor, administrative
                    support) are responsible for ensuring that the form has proper grammar,
                    punctuation, and spelling and that the form meets the requirements of this
                    Instruction.

      B.     Alleged Hazards.

             1.     Copy the complaint and referral items from the Hazard Description on the
                    Notice of Alleged Safety and Health Hazards (form BSR/MIOSHA-7) and
                    Referral Report (form OSHA-90).

             2.     To save time and avoid retyping the Hazard Description, use the copy and
                    paste function of Microsoft Word to copy the Hazard Description from the
                    electronic version of the complaint or referral, if there is an electronic
                    version.

             3.     The hazards as stated on the form BSR/MIOSHA-7 and form OSHA-90
                    can be reorganized on the IFCRI form to facilitate completion of the
                    IFCRI form. Reorganizing can mean reordering the hazards, splitting one
                    hazard into multiple hazards (e.g., when one hazard is covered by multiple
                    regulations), or combining similar hazards (e.g., if they are covered by the
                    same regulation).

             4.     The Hazard Description on the form BSR/MIOSHA-7 and form OSHA-90
                    may include descriptive or background information, like the number of
                    employees in a work area. This information is not an Alleged Hazard and
                    does not have to be copied onto the IFCRI form.

      C.     Inspection Findings.

             1.     The Inspection Finding is a brief summary of the information gathered
                    during the inspection on the hazard described in the complaint or referral
                    and the employer’s compliance with the applicable regulation. Limit the
                    Inspection Findings to a few sentences; this is a summary. Do not include
                    all the information in the case file on the alleged hazard.

             2.     If a citation or recommendation is to be issued about the alleged hazard,
                    the Inspection Finding would at a minimum be a reference to that citation
                    or recommendation. Examples:

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: There are chemicals in Housekeeping that do not
                    have a material safety data sheet.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: See citation 2, items 1a and 1b.

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: The chairs are old and cause people to have back
                    problems when sitting and working all day.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: See recommendation 1.

                    More information can be given if it helps clarify the findings to the
                    audience. Examples:

Communication of Inspection Findings

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: There are chemicals in Housekeeping that do not
                    have a material safety data sheet.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: The employer had material safety data
                    sheets (MSDSs) for all the chemicals used in Housekeeping. The MSDSs
                    were kept in the front offices. However, housekeepers were not informed
                    of the existence of and location of these MSDSs either through
                    information and training or through posted signs. See citation 2, items 1a
                    and 1b.

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: The chairs were old and caused people to have
                    back problems when sitting and working all day.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: The chairs in the Assembly Department and
                    Trim Department were purchased over 30 years ago. None of the 37
                    chairs in these two departments had lumbar support or adjustable seat
                    height. Seven had missing backs. Eight of the fifteen employees we
                    interviewed in these departments complained of back pain. The
                    ergonomics of the workstations in these departments put stress on the
                    lower back. That is, the worktable height was low, and the seat heights
                    were high, causing assemblers and trimmers to slouch forward while
                    working. See recommendation 1.

             3.     If no citation or recommendation is issued, the Inspection Findings would
                    at a minimum be a statement that no citation is issued, accompanied by a
                    brief statement indicating why no citation is issued. Example:

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: Employees are not wearing proper eye
                    protection.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: All employees were wearing appropriate
                    eye protection. No citation is issued.

                    More information can be added, as deemed appropriate. Example:

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: Employees are not wearing proper eye
                    protection.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: All employees were wearing safety glasses
                    with side shields. A higher level of eye protection (goggles or face
                    shields) was not necessary for the eye hazards encountered in the
                    automobile service area. No citation is issued.

             4.     Legally, MIOSHA does not draw conclusions on the accuracy of the
                    complaint or referral. MIOSHA does determine an employer’s
                    compliance with the MIOSH Act and the standards promulgated under the
                    Act. As such, avoid statements like:

                       “We were unable to substantiate this allegation.”

MIOSHA-COM-08-1

Communication of Inspection Findings

                       “The complaint item is not valid.”
                       “This hazard was not found.”
                       “Valid.”
                       “Invalid.”

             5.     Avoid sweeping generalizations. MIOSHA inspection findings are always
                    limited by the brief time a CSHO spends at the establishment, the honesty
                    of interviewees, the CSHO’s inability to witness past events, the inability
                    to observe everything at the establishment, work practices and operations
                    during other shifts, and by how representative the working conditions are
                    compared to other days.

                    POOR:          The welding fume exposures of the welder are above the
                                   permissible exposure limit.
                    BETTER:        On February 12, 2004, the welding fume exposure of the
                                   welder was above the permissible exposure limit.

                    POOR:          We observed that grinders do not wear safety glasses.
                    BETTER:        We observed ten grinders, and eight of them were not
                                   wearing safety glasses.

             6.     Regulation Not Applicable. In certain circumstances, the MIOSHA
                    regulation may not be applicable, for example, because the work is outside
                    the scope and application of the Standard (given at or near the beginning
                    of each Standard), or the exposure to a chemical or physical agent is below
                    the action level or permissible exposure limit. In such circumstances, the
                    Inspection Findings would indicate the scope and application of the
                    regulation and how the work falls outside of it. Examples:

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: The employer does not provide hearing tests.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: Our personal noise monitoring of five
                    employees in the assembly area, the loudest area of the plant based on our
                    sound level meter readings, indicated that employees were not exposed
                    above the action level (see the attached Noise Data Sheet). Noise
                    monitoring results from the employer’s loss control agent from 2000 and
                    2004 also showed noise exposures below the action level. Noise
                    exposures below the action level do not require audiometric testing under
                    Part 380, Occupational Noise Exposure. No citation is issued.

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: The employer does not provide steel-toed safety
                    shoes. Everyone is wearing tennis shoes.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: Rule 3385(1) of Part 33, Personal Protective
                    Equipment, states that protective footwear shall be worn when working in
                    areas where an employee’s feet are exposed to electrical hazards or where
                    there is a danger of foot injuries due to falling or rolling objects or the

MIOSHA-COM-08-1

Communication of Inspection Findings

                    danger of objects piercing the sole of the shoe. Rule 3386 requires
                    protective footwear where a hazard is created from a process,
                    environment, chemical or mechanical irritant which would cause an injury
                    to the feet by absorption or physical contact. We found no such hazards in
                    the assembly area. According to our interviews with employees and
                    management, employees have not had any foot injuries.

             7.     No Applicable Regulation. The some circumstances the Alleged Hazard
                    may have no specific rule that covers the situation, and the general duty
                    clause is not used. An example would be mold. In such circumstances,
                    the Inspection Findings would state that there is no applicable regulation.
                    If information was collected on the hazard, it can be summarized. A
                    reference to a recommendation is also acceptable.

                    ALLEGED HAZARD: Black mold can be found growing on the ceiling
                    tiles. Employees are ill because of the black mold. Symptoms include
                    runny noses, eye irritation, and breathing problems.
                    INSPECTION FINDINGS: MIOSHA has no specific regulations on
                    mold. We counted 31 ceiling tiles that were stained and damaged due to
                    water infiltration. The roof leaks were repaired in November 2005. There
                    was no evidence of any water infiltration since then. Several employees in
                    the work area told us of eye, nose, and bronchial irritation associated with
                    time spent in the workplace. See Recommendation 3.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Employees on roof with no fall protection.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            Part 45, Fall Protection, 1926.501(b)(10) allows the use of a safety monitoring
                                                 system as a means of fall protection. At the time of our inspection, a safety
                                                 monitoring system was being implemented. This was verified through the
                                                 observation of the inspector and interviews with employees and management.
                                                 The company’s written safety and health program described the safety
                                                 monitoring system. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Employees on scaffold with no guardrails.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            No guardrails required by regulations during the disassembly of a scaffold. At
                                                 the time of our inspection, employees were disassembling the scaffold. No
                                                 citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Hazardous sealer is being applied to the floors and walls. The sealer is highly
                                                 volatile. The smell is making employees sick, gets in everyone’s hair and nose,
                                                 and takes their breath away.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            Our air monitoring for the chemicals in the sealer did not find air
                                                 concentrations above the permissible exposure limit (see Air Contaminant Data
                                                 Sheet). Interviewed workers complained of eye, nose, and respiratory irritation
                                                 due to the odor from the sealer. The work area had no mechanical ventilation
                                                 to take away the odors. See recommendation #1.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 The fire exit is blocked behind layaway.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            At the time of our inspection, the fire exit behind layaway was not blocked.
                                                 According to employee interviews, the fire exit had been blocked in the past for
                                                 1-to-2 hour periods when pallets were temporarily stored there, but that practice
                                                 was discontinued over six months ago. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Employees used a spray booth setup that had no ventilation.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            At the time of this inspection, there was no spray room in the building, and no
                                                 spray-finishing operations were being conducted at your facility. According to
                                                 management and employee interviews, the spray-booth operation was
                                                 discontinued in August 2004. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Employees were exposed to open containers of stain.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            We observed no containers of stain in the shop area. We did not conduct air
                                                 monitoring, as no exposure was determined. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 There were no guards on table saws.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            We determined that during saw use, a hood-type guard was not used. See
                                                 citation 1, item 1.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 The floor was slippery.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            We observed that employees who were cutting wood used electrically powered
                                                 circular saws that resulted in the production of a fine dust. We determined that
                                                 the floor and work areas where the saws were located were kept clean to the
                                                 extent that the nature of the work allowed. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 The propane-powered lift truck was operated indoors, and this resulted in high
                                                 levels of carbon monoxide in the warehouse.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            Air monitoring by MIOSHA for carbon monoxide on May 10, 2004, did not
                                                 reveal any employee exposures in excess of the permissible exposure limit. See
                                                 Data Sheet A#1. No citation is issued.

 Site Address:                   816 Airport Road, Lansing, MI 48909                            Compl. #

 Inspection Date(s):             08/03/04                                                       Ref. #              202381472


 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 In department 812, employees may be exposed to chemicals that cause
                                                 occupational asthma.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            We were informed that your paint products are mostly water reducible enamels.
                                                 Air monitoring by us did not reveal any employee exposures in excess of the
                                                 PEL. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 The ventilation and controls may be inadequate to control employee exposure
                                                 to chemicals that cause occupational asthma.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            Based on your 1,560 square foot paint area, ventilation is less than required.
                                                 See Data Sheet V#1. See citation 2, item 1.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 There may be individuals with symptoms of occupational asthma in the
                                                 workplace.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            We were informed that no occupational injuries or illnesses were reported to
                                                 you in the last 2 years. We also distributed medical questionnaires for
                                                 respiratory illness to three employees. The answers to the questionnaires were
                                                 analyzed by Kenneth D. Rosenman, M.D., an occupational health physician at
                                                 Michigan State University. He stated that there were too few employee
                                                 breathing questionnaires completed during this inspection for any meaningful
                                                 results. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Dental assistant have not been given the hepatitis B vaccination.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            The exposure control plan for Happy Tooth Dental Clinic places the dental
                                                 assistants in Category A due to their potential exposure to blood during dental
                                                 procedures and housekeeping tasks. According to the medical records of the
                                                 fifteen dental assistants, six had no record of a hepatitis B vaccination or a
                                                 signed waiver for the vaccination. When interviewed, these employees stated
                                                 that the employer had not offered them the hepatitis B vaccination. See citation
                                                 1, item 1.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 Employees do not receive regular training on bloodborne pathogens.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            The training records indicated that training on bloodborne infectious diseases
                                                 was provided to all employees in 2002. There was no record of any training
                                                 since then, which meant that the four dental assistants hired since then have
                                                 received no training, and none of the dental assistants received annual training
                                                 in 2003. The office manager, who coordinated the training, confirmed the lack
                                                 of training, as did the dental assistances we interviewed. See citation 1, item 2.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 The dentist has no log of the needlesticks, and there were two needlesticks in
                                                 the last summer.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            Rule 15(12) of Part 554, Bloodborne Infectious Diseases, requires an employer
                                                 to establish and maintain a sharps injury log for recording of percutaneous
                                                 injuries from contaminated sharps. This requirement applies to any employer
                                                 who is required to maintain a log of occupational injuries and illnesses under
                                                 Part 11, Recording and Reporting of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. Part
                                                 11, however, exempts offices and clinics of dentists from the requirement to
                                                 maintain a log of occupational injuries and illnesses; therefore, no sharps injury
                                                 log is required at this establishment. No citation is issued.

 ALLEGED HAZARD:                                 There was no testing of the patient’s blood after the two needlestick injuries of
                                                 dental assistants.
 INSPECTION FINDINGS:                            The employer representative stated that no attempt was made to test the source
                                                 individual’s blood after two needlesticks (May 13, 2003, and September 4,
                                                 2003). The exposed employees were dental assistants in both incidents. See
