Webinar: OSHA in the Supply Chain – How Far Does Your Liability Extend?

September 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Perhaps you are the general contractor on a construction project in which an employee of one of your electrical subcontractor is electrocuted after failing to lock out a circuit he was working on.  Can OSHA cite you for an OSHA violation?  Or perhaps you run a factory where an employee of a temporary staffing company unwittingly puts his hand in a nip point in a place he is not supposed to be and gets injured.  Can OSHA cite you for an OSHA violation?  These scenarios ask to what extent is a company liable for hazards created by other companies with whom the company works.  How far does your company’s OSHA liability extend?

This webinar will address this question by discussing OSHA’s multi-employer doctrine, OSHA’s temporary worker initiative, and OSHA obligations regarding contracting parties.  Participants will learn:

  • The scope of OSHA liability for multi-employer worksites
  • The scope of OSHA liability regarding temporary workers
  • Best hiring practices for contractors and temporary workers
  • Best practices for training requirements for contractors and temporary workers
  • What to do when OSHA conducts an inspection at your worksite as a result of an injury to another company’s employee.
