Contractor safety is a significant issue because contract and contingent workers are disproportionately likely to be injured or killed on the job. The financial and legal risks for employers are also considerable. OSHA/MSHA can issue dual citations, depending on the circumstances present, injuries can result in tort litigation unless the worker can be classified as a borrowed employee or the company can be deemed the statutory employer. Increasingly, individual managers are also sued under the torts of negligence training or supervision. This program will discuss OSHA/MSHA and tort theories of liability, the IRS classification system, new data on the safety of contingent workers, and workers' compensation issues. It will also discuss how to proactively prequalify contractors, and coordinate training and other program activities to improve overall workplace safety.
