Workplace Safety: Rules and Responsibilities When Working With Temporary Workers

September 8

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.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to recognize the different categories of workers - temporary workers, employees, and independent contractors, and OSHA’s expectations for protecting them all.
  • You will be able to discuss tort liability exposure involving temporary workers and related workers’ compensation and indemnification issues.
  • You will be able to explain best practices for effectively managing temporary workers daily and during OSHA inspections, to avoid liability and penalties.
  • You will be able to identify which OSHA standards and U.S. Department of Labor laws are implicated in managing temporary workers and responding to allegations of worker misclassification.
