Case Summary

 

The table below contains preliminary information about Michigan workers who died as a result of an injury sustained while at work. The information has been obtained from public media sources, MIOSHA, and stakeholder reporters. MIFACE has not verified this information; verification may conclude that the death is out of scope.

A MIOSHA program-related fatality is determined by whether the individual who died was employed in an industry included in MIOSHA jurisdiction as defined in Public Act 154 of 1974, as amended and the fatality may be related to a MIOSHA standard.
