Employer Responsibilities to Protect Temporary Workers
Cost: Free to Members and Self-Insured Clients
As employers look to re-open, staffing open positions may be more difficult than in the past due the pandemic and changing workforce so more employers are looking at using temporary agencies to staff positions. Under OSHA, both the host employer and the staffing agencies have requirements to comply with workplace health and safety as both share the responsibility for ensuring worker safety and health. OSHA could hold both the host and temporary employers responsible for violations. Temporary staffing agencies and host employers share control over the worker, and are therefore jointly responsible for temporary workers' safety and health.
This NEW webinar will provide employers who either have temporary workers or are contemplating using temporary workers the information necessary to ensure compliance is met and workers remain safe.
