Oct. 31, 2012 - PRLog -- Picture a work site with a number of subcontractors – from HVAC, to framework – feverishly working to ensure the project’s due date. A worker hastily secures a ladder, and the floor bows out, causing that individual to obtain an injury from the fall. Fingers are pointed, but due to the high count of employees on site, placing liability on one group becomes an obstacle.  

When a work site employs individuals from multiple subcontractors and something goes awry, how do you successfully resolve matters? According to the OSHA Multi-employer Worksite Liability Doctrine, “an employer, including a general contractor, who creates or controls a worksite safety hazard, may be liable for violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) even if the employees exposed to the hazard are solely employees of a different employer.” This means that nearly any contractor on the worksite could be held accountable.

Get the details when you attend the upcoming webinar, “Humpty Dumpty had a Great Fall: Who is Responsible?” with Frank Goodwin, a seasoned OSHA and safety professional.  Join this Live FutureOffice Network webinar on November 13th, 2012 at 1 p.m., Central Standard Time.
