Webinar: Temporary Workforce and the Long Term Care Provider’s Responsibility: How to Stay out of Trouble with OSHA

Adrienne Riaz-Khan

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched a new initiative to investigate employers’ use of temporary workers. OSHA alleges that temporary workers are not receiving the same degree of protection from safety and health hazards as are regular employees. This initiative, coupled with OSHA’s ongoing Nursing Home National Emphasis Program, should put all long term care providers on “high alert” regarding their practices related to temporary workers. This informative webinar will help long term care providers navigate the tricky legal and practical issues associated with using a temporary workforce and how to stay OSHA compliant.
