One Jobsite x Multiple Contractors = Many Hazards.
This equation is a simple one, but it can get tricky to determine who is responsible for making sure that all areas of a jobsite are safe for the workers. Add in an OSHA inspection at the jobsite, and the equation can get much more complicated.
In this situation, which company will be cited? You may be surprised to hear that the answer is not as straightforward as you would think. The General Contractor on the site is responsible for the overall project; however, subcontractors may also be responsible, and cited, by OSHA.
In our next webinar, we’ll take a look at OSHA’s Multi-Employer Citation Policy and dive into the safety and health responsibilities each construction employer has on the jobsite.
We will discuss:
What is a multi-employer worksite
• Safety obligations on contracts and purchase orders
• New hires on a construction project – safety & risks
• The importance of your safety track record
• Proactive safety measures to win more bids
o How your Experience Modification Rate (EMR) effects worker’s compensation premiums
o What are the direct and indirect costs of an accident
o Discuss how your safety program can affect insurance and bonding costs
We’ll also look at best safety practices employers can take to reduce accident, insurance, and bonding costs. This webinar is geared toward the construction safety and business-minded employers so don’t miss it!
