OSHA Held Meeting on Occupational Safety and Health for Temp Workers

OSHA scheduled a meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety and Health’s Temporary Workers Workgroup.

The workgroup met to continue its discussion of issues regarding protecting temporary workers and develop recommendations for NACOSH’s consideration. The issues include gaps in the workplace protection for temporary workers, differences between temporary workers and contract workers and joint responsibility of host employers and staffing agencies.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA’s role is to ensure these conditions for America’s working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education and assistance.
