Class description

With construction booming, many roofing contractors find themselves struggling to provide enough labor at each project. As a result, more roofing contractors are hiring subcontractors to help manage the current workload. Subcontracting work, however, does not absolve a roofing contractor of responsibility for safety under the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), even in a situation where all the work is performed by a subcontractor. OSHA can issue a citation to the controlling employer, the correcting employer and the creating employer, in addition to the exposing employer.

During this webinar, Philip Siegel, a partner with Atlanta-based Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Siegel and legal counsel to the National Roofing Legal Resource Center, discusses OSHA's multi-employer worksite doctrine and the duties required of each type of employer on a multi-employer worksite. Siegel also addresses the unforeseeable employee misconduct defense to an OSHA citation—when the roofing contractor is cited as the exposing employer.
