OSHA’s New Rules on Temporary and Contract Food Workers – Are You at Risk?


Learn how to prepare for OSHA’s new Joint Employer ruling and protect your organization from costly non-compliances

The salmonella outbreak related to the Peanut Corporation of America’s products resulted in nine deaths and hundreds hospitalized. According to industry estimates, the peanut industry suffered $1 billion in losses from consumers avoiding peanut products. Recently, two executives were sentenced to 20+ year jail terms and the QA manager was sentenced to a 5 year jail term. These criminal convictions are the first of their kind for a food poisoning outbreak. Join us as we discuss lessons learned from the PCA case and what you can do to prevent a similar situation from occurring in your organization.

Key Takeaways:

  • Under OSHA and the NRLB’s Joint Employer ruling, both the staffing agency and host employer are responsible for employee training and documentation
  • Companies should take these steps to ensure they are compliant with joint employer responsibility:

    1. Identify and classify your supplier/partner relationship
    2. Understand your joint employer status risk
    3. Prepare a plan
    4. Roll out your plan company-wide
  • The staffing agency is responsible for inquiring and verifying that the host has fulfilled its responsibilities for a safe workplace
