The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued recommended practices for temporary workers and issued bulletins on such topics as hazard communication, bloodborne pathogens, and powered industrial truck training.
This webinar will review "TWI Bulletin No. 5: Hazard Communication," which requires employers to provide information and training to their employees about the hazardous chemicals to which they may be exposed in the workplace. Workers have the right to all pertinent information that will enable them to work with or around such chemicals in a safe manner, and employers must maintain a written hazard communication program at work sites.
During this webinar, attendees will learn
How to identify who is responsible for providing hazard communication information and training to temporary workers
What the staffing firm's and host employer's responsibilities are
How OSHA can help employers ensure the safety of their workers
Sven Rundman, supervisory industrial hygienist, Office of Health Enforcement, OSHA
