OSHA Issues Reminder on Temp Safety
OSHA’s director of enforcement programs sent a reminder to regional directors of the agency’s ongoing focus on temporary workers.
“Too often in recent months, it has been OSHA’s sad duty to investigate fatalities and injuries involving temporary workers who were not given the necessary safety and health protections required under the act,” wrote Thomas Galassi, director, directorate of enforcement programs at OSHA. “In the [Temporary Worker Initiative], we are attempting to ensure that all employers, whether host or staffing agency, individually and collaboratively, fulfill their duties to their workers, so that at the end of the shift every work day, all temporary workers in the United States can return home safely.”
