Managing Safety at Multi-Employer & Joint Employer Worksites: Key Strategies for Ensuring Contractor Compliance & Limiting Liability - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid OSHA compliance pitfalls and keep employees safe on multi-employer and joint employer worksites.


 

Under OSHA’s multiemployer citation policy, exposures and hazards created by any contractor on a worksite can lead to citations and fines for other contractors on-site. Therefore, it’s critical for employers at multiemployer worksites to understand when they could be considered a creating employer, an exposing employer, a correcting employer, or a controlling employer—and the potential safety duties and liabilities associated with each—in order to take steps to manage contractor safety and maintain a safe and compliant worksite.

With six-figure OSHA penalties showing no sign of slowing down, it’s more important than ever to take a proactive approach to contractor safety management and implement best practices before OSHA comes calling.

Use this on-demand webinar with Adele Abrams, a skilled OSHA attorney and safety professional, on how to navigate safety at multi-employer worksites to minimize the risk of injuries and avoid costly OSHA penalties for non-compliance. 

You’ll learn how to:

  • Define the roles of creating, exposing, correcting, and controlling employers under OSHA’s multiemployer citation policy and identify the safety liabilities and duties of each, including the recent US Court of Appeals decision on this enforcement scheme
  • Identify best practices for prequalifying and selecting contractors with a strong record of safety performance, including addressing insurance and indemnification
  • Learn how OSHA’s “Joint Employer” approach is used with respect to temporary workers and others employed in the “gig” economy, and how recent changes to NLRB policy will impact OSHA enforcement
  • Determine the safety responsibilities of each employer on a worksite and develop a strategy to ensure that all parties uphold their duties, including consideration of ANSI A10.33 for multi-employer construction projects
  • Identify strategies to foster effective safety communication among all parties on a multiemployer worksite
