Recordkeeping Update (Intermediate)  Deb Gorkisch, MIOSHA CET Safety Consultant and Terrilyn Frierson, MIOSHA Departmental Supervisor.

After a brief overview of the MIOSHA record keeping requirements, some explanation of the recent 2016/2017 changes, along with discussion of some common misconceptions, the floor will be opened up to audience issues.  As time permits, opportunity will be provided for attendees to ask those nagging questions they have encountered as they navigate the sometimes murky waters of adequate record keeping.
