OSHA issues new safety bulletins for temporary workers

Publications cover training responsibilities for host employer and staffing agency

Posted May 18, 2016

OSHA recently published two new bulletins as part of a series of guidance documents aimed at helping protect temporary workers.

The documents are part of the agency’s Temporary Worker Initiative (TWI). The initiative focuses on compliance with safety and health requirements when temporary workers are employed under the joint employment of a staffing agency and a host employer.

In the bulletins, OSHA outlines the general responsibilities of the host employer and the staffing agency on Safety and Health and Hazard Communication training for temporary employees.
