Temporary Worker and Contractor Training: Learn Who is Responsible and How to Develop an OSHA-Compliant Program- On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to train your temporary workers and independent contractors to minimize safety risks.

According to OSHA, many fatal incidents have occurred where temporary workers were not provided the training necessary to do their job safely.

OSHA is increasingly citing both the host employer and the contractor or staffing agency for failing to adequately train workers how to recognize worksite hazards and prevent injuries.

There are over 100 OSHA standards that govern safety training. Because there’s no bright-line rule on who is responsible for training temporary or contract workers at host employer worksites, safety and HR managers have their work cut out for them. And, their questions abound, for instance:

  • When an employer hires a contractor, who is responsible for training the contractor’s workers in safe practices?
  • When a staffing agency provides workers to a hiring or host employer, who provides safety training to the workers?
  • Who does OSHA cite when there is a training violation, the host employer or the contractor/staffing agency?

Use this on-demand webinar led by former OSHA head and workplace safety attorney Ed Foulke of Fisher Phillips LLP that will answer these questions and so many more.

You will learn how to: 

  • Recognize host employer responsibilities and staffing agency or contractor responsibilities for training workers at host employer’s worksites
  • Use the proper safety training that workers can understand
  • Determine when and where temporary or contract workers must be trained on topics such as PPE and hazard communication
  • Determine who must keep records of training as well as workplace injuries and illnesses

And, as a bonus for attending you will receive BLR’s Host Employer Facility Inspection Checklist!
