Temporary Worker Safety: Strategies To Reduce Liability And Comply With OSHA Requirements
|Date / Time:
Since launching the Temporary Worker Initiative (TWI) in 2013, OSHA has been stepping up enforcement efforts to prevent work-related injuries and illnesses among temporary workers, one of the fastest growing employment sectors.
OSHA reiterates that both the host employer and the hiring/staffing agency are responsible for the safety of temporary workers, and has identified key areas that should be thoroughly addressed prior to placement—including training, hazard recognition, clear documentation of roles and responsibilities, and compliant illness and injury tracking.
If your company is using temporary employees, it’s critical that you fine-tune your temporary employee safety program so you can protect workers and avoid substantial fines if you are found liable in an incident.
Join us on November 12 when our presenter, a seasoned safety and employment attorney, will teach you how to determine when you have retained temporary workers covered under OSHA’s initiative, what your requirements are under OSHA regulations and other applicable statues and regulations, and how to develop and implement a compliant program that protects both temporary workers and your company.
You and your team will learn how to:
