Contractor Safety: How To Keep Contractors Safe and In Compliance at Your Worksite

Employer Resource Institute Webinar

Wednesday, July 21, 2010
10:30 a.m. to Noon (Pacific)

Order Option       Price  
CD Recording Only       $127      

A federal court recently ruled that Summit Contractors, the general contractor on a college dormitory project, was liable for a hazardous work condition caused by one of its subcontractors. They may not technically be your employees, but if a contractor gets hurt on your job site -- or creates a dangerous condition that hurts someone else -- it's most definitely your problem.

Contractors are required to follow your safety program and inform you of any hazards that could potentially occur as a result of their work onsite. You also need to make sure that every contract employee knows how to safely perform his/her job and has been trained as required by the Cal/OSHA regulations.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on July 21, when you'll learn:

  • How cal/osha defines "multiple employers"
  • When a general contractor may -- and may not -- be cited for the safety violations of its subcontractors
  • To what degree you should get involved in the management, direction, or control over your contractor's safety program
  • Whether the general contractor and subcontractors need their own Injury and Illness Prevention Plan, or whether yours will cover them while they're on your property
  • How the California Corporate Liability Act affects contracted activities
  • How to spot-check and evaluate a contractor's ongoing safety performance, and when to require Safety Work Plans on phased projects
  • Who has responsibility for management and disposal of hazardous materials used or left at your site by a contractor
