OSHA releases bulletin on temp worker requirements

March 14 2014

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration released an educational resource that focuses on compliance with safety and health requirements when temporary workers are employed under the joint, or dual, employment of a staffing agency and a host employer.

The bulletin explains the requirements for both the staffing agency and the host employer, and addresses how to identify who is responsible for recording work-related injuries and illnesses of temporary workers on the OSHA 300 log.

This is the first in a series of guidance documents issued under OSHA’s temporary worker initiative. OSHA launched the initiative in April to help protect temporary workers from workplace hazards.
