Temporary Worker Safety: Strategies To Reduce Liability And Comply With OSHA Requirements

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.

Learning Objectives

You and your team will learn how to:

  • Assess the definition for temporary workers as it applies to your organization
  • Determine how to best agree upon safety responsibilities and obligations for temporary workers with the staffing agency or hiring agency
  • Consider the potential risks and hazards that must be addressed for the temporary workers that you retain
  • Understand the OSHA Temporary Worker Initiative as it applies to your organization and the questions that OSHA will ask during an inspection
  • Understand what OSHA regulations apply for the temporary workers that you retain and when you are responsible for ensuring compliance with those regulations
  • Determine the correct way to document injuries and illnesses for temporary workers as part of your injury and illness recordkeeping program
  • Establish a comprehensive training program for temporary workers that is aligned and consistent with the training program in place for permanent workers
  • Discuss the necessary contractual provisions to assure that all responsibilities and obligations with the hiring/staffing agency are clearly defined, understood and addressed

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand Or CD versions, as shown in the pricing options below.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
