HPSS Webinar: Understanding OSHA's Multi-Employer Worksite Doctrine and the Unforeseeable Employee Misconduct Defense
On May 10, beginning at 2:00 PM Eastern, Philip Siegel will present a one-hour webinar titled, "Understanding OSHA's Multi-Employer Worksite Doctrine and the Unforeseeable Employee Misconduct Defense."
With construction booming, many contractors find themselves struggling to provide enough labor at each project. As a result, more and more roofing contractors are engaging subcontractors to help with the current work load. Subcontracting work to a subcontractor, however, does not absolve the roofing contractor of responsibility for safety under OSHA, even in a situation where all of the work is performed by a subcontractor. OSHA can issue a citation to the controlling employer, the correcting employer, and the creating employer, in addition to the exposing employer. We will discuss OSHA's multi-employer worksite doctrine, and we will also be sure to discuss the duties required of each type of employer on a multi-employer worksite. We will also address the unforeseeable employee misconduct defense to an OSHA citation, for when the subcontractor is cited as the exposing employer.
The webinar is free and open to the public. You can attend the webinar by clicking here on May 10 prior to the start of the webinar. Space is limited.
