OSHA on how to protect temporary workers

To protect temporary workers from exploitation and unsafe job sites in Texas, OSHA requires certain requirements to be met. The responsibility of meeting these requirements falls with both the staffing agencies and host employers. First, both sides should know that they have a joint liability to temp workers and that this should be laid out clearly in their contract.

Failure to provide fall protection tops OSHA violations list

OSHA strives to help both workers and employers in Texas enjoy safe workplaces. Nevertheless, there some work environments where established regulations haven't been implemented or properly followed. In order to shine a spotlight on such issues, OSHA has issued its list of the most common workplace violations found in 2018. Accounting for more than 7,000 citations, fall violations, which often involve contractors working on steep roofs and other high surfaces without protection, once again topped the list.
