Workplace Safety: Rules and Responsibilities When Working With Temporary Workers

 

Gain an understanding of OSHA/MSHA temporary worker and independent contractor protection and enforcement programs.

The U.S. Department of Labor's definition of independent contractor has been in a state of flux between the Obama/Trump/Biden administrations and this can create confusion about classification of workers and the responsibilities that the host employer has under the Occupational Safety & Health Act, the Mine Safety & Health Act, and implementing policies. Both agencies also provide for situations where an employer can be dually cited along with staffing agencies or contractors, with penalties of up to $136,532 (OSHA) or $274,175 (MSHA) per violation. Injuries impacting third-party workers - temps, independent contractors, and day laborers - can also trigger tort liability against the host employer or general contractor in the millions of dollars. This topic will provide the most current guidance from OSHA/MSHA on their temporary worker and independent contractor protection and enforcement programs and offer tips on how to protect everyone at the worksite, manage compliance, and mitigate liability.
