OSHA’s Temporary Worker Initiative: 2014 OSHA Webinar Series, Part I

Eric Conn, Chair of Epstein Becker Green’s OSHA Practice Group, presents a five-part webinar program for employers facing the daunting task of complying with OSHA’s numerous federal and state occupational safety and health standards and regulations.

Part I of the 2014 OSHA webinar series will focus on OSHA’s Temporary Worker Initiative, enforcement issues and data related to this work relationship, and recommendations and strategies for managing safety and health issues related to a temporary workforce.

Companies are expected to employ many more temporary workers as the Affordable Care Act is implemented, particularly when the “Employer Mandate” kicks in, which will require employers with 50 or more workers to provide affordable coverage to employees who work at least 30 hours per week. With this anticipated increase in the use of temporary workers, along with recent reports of temporary workers suffering fatal workplace injuries on their first days on a new job, OSHA will make temporary worker safety a top priority in 2014 and has already launched a Temporary Worker Initiative.
