Safety Liability Dangers At Multi Employer Or Contractor Run Worksites: Avoid OSHA Violations And Properly Manage Training And Supervision
|Date / Time:
||5/18/2017 / 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern
Contract workers can be found in just about every workplace across various industries. While independent contractors are typically responsible for their own safety and liability obligations, the division of responsibility between contractors and the host organization, even if spelled out in an agreement, isn’t always black and white.
It’s critical to develop clear guidelines that establish who is responsible for specific safety obligations such as training, enforcement of safety rules, first aid and medical services, workers’ compensation, compliance with regulatory requirements, development of safe work procedures and policies, and personal protective equipment. Also, it’s equally important to ensure that these guidelines are followed; otherwise, you run the risk of being on the hook in the event of a workplace injury that leads to costly OSHA fines.
Join us for a road map on managing safety at multi-employer or contractor-run worksites. You’ll get expert insights to help you thoroughly address all necessary safety considerations for contractors, clearly define and document responsibilities, and take the required steps to protect your organization from potential risks and liabilities.
Plus, you’ll learn:
