Temporary Worker Safety 101: Essential Strategies for Host Employers and Staffing Agencies - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: With the rate of hiring temporary workers on the rise, OSHA has been focusing safety compliance requirements around these contact workers. Ensure your safety program is compliant with every one of your workers with this upcoming webinar lead by safety attorney Adele Abrams.

As a share of the overall workforce, temporary workers are on the rise—a trend that is likely to continue. This has attracted enforcement attention from OSHA, as well as plaintiff attorneys who see a route to avoiding workers’ compensation exclusive remedies in injury cases.

Because the modern workforce is so heterogeneous, your safety program must effectively deal with all workers—including these temporary and contract workers. In the past, safety requirements were usually handled in the legal agreement, and while this is still an excellent strategy, in the eyes of OSHA, you, the host company, become the actual employer of record. This means that OSHA not only looks at contractual language, but also at the practices in place at the worksite for the safety supervision of temporary workers.

In addition, OSHA has issued numerous documents that attempt to clarify who is responsible for assuring employee safety when multiple employers are involved. For contractors, the “Multi-Employer Citation Policy” outlines OSHA’s process for determining which employer(s) to cite for safety violations in a given situation. For host employers and staffing agencies that deal with temporary workers, OSHA has issued a series of bulletins that aim to clarify the responsibility of the two parties for recordkeeping, training, providing PPE, and a variety of other key safety considerations.

Use this on-demand webinar with Adele Abrams, an experienced safety lawyer who has helped many companies develop and implement effective temporary and contract worker safety programs, when she will provide guidance and information on developing a program from scratch, as well as assistance in evaluating an existing program to help attendees ensure that their programs are compliant and fine-tuned to succeed.
