The Assurex Global Construction Practice Group has just released the whitepaper, Risk Management Solutions for Temporary Workers.
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced increases to federal penalties for workplace safety violations. It’s the first escalation in OSHA penalties in 25 years. The increased penalties, which were buried in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, will take effect August 1, 2016, in all states regulated by federal OSHA. The increase in fines, along with OSHA’s long-standing multi-employer citation policy and newer Temporary Employee Initiative, raise concerns for construction companies that use temporary and leased employees.
Read the whitepaper to get insight on risk management considerations that will help you avoid fines and citations.
