Temporary-worker bulletin aims to clarify reporting requirements for employers

Washington – OSHA has released a new guidance document that focuses on how employers of temporary workers can comply with injury recording requirements.

Part of a temporary-worker safety initiative, the educational bulletin seeks to clarify whether the host employer or staffing agency is responsible for recording injuries and illnesses for temporary workers.

In recent months, OSHA has investigated several reports of temporary workers suffering serious and fatal injuries.

“These materials will provide valuable information for both host employers and staffing agencies on how they can work together to make sure their workers are properly trained and protected,” agency administrator David Michaels said in a press release.
