With more organizations hiring independent contractors to deal with economic, staffing, and business challenges--with typical duties including janitorial duties, building construction and renovation, different production activities, security, and maintenance--it's important to understand the risk of liability your organization could face if those workers aren't properly trained on safety protocols. In this webinar, seasoned safety lawyer Howard Mavity will provide a clear understanding of the potential safety risks and liability associated with independent contractors.
Having an effective and consistent program in place for enforcing safety rules, performance, and behavior is vital for a successful safety program. A well-written, clear discipline plan is also crucial for enforcement. In this webinar, Gary Visscher, a seasoned safety lawyer who has helped many companies design and implement an effective safety enforcement program, will provide a roadmap for developing and implementing an effective enforcement strategy, including infraction discipline—often a missing ingredient in existing safety programs.

White Papers
Your executives may have abandoned the two-martini lunch in favor of iced tea. But many of your employees may be coming to work under the influence, increasing the chance of incidents and decreasing productivity. Workplace use of drugs and alcohol is the subject of this Compliance Report.
The classic example of a distraction leading to a fatal error in a safety-critical situation is the teenage driver who crosses the center line on the road while texting and kills herself or someone else. But driving isn’t the only safety-critical situation, and text messages aren’t the only distractions.
Simulator training is becoming increasingly common, increasingly sophisticated, and increasingly effective at preparing workers for challenges they may face at work.
Determining whether an injury or illness is recordable can be tricky. This infographic guides you through OSHA's criteria for recordable cases.
Does your recordkeeping indicate that some employees are repeatedly involved in safety incidents, while others work for years without so much as a minor scrape? This Compliance Report delves into the subject of accident repeaters. It’s a topic that elicits strong responses from those who believe there is an accident-prone personality and those who insist the opposite is true.
Most workplaces have an array of emergency equipment available, much of it required by one safety and health standard or another. But none of that helps if workers don’t know where to find the equipment and how to use it properly. This training session reviews common types of emergency equipment available in many workplaces, where they should be located, and how to use them.
Unlike Cal/OSHA, federal OSHA doesn’t have a heat illness prevention standard, but that doesn’t mean the agency doesn’t concern itself with heat-related illnesses. In 2012–2013, OSHA cited 20 employers under the general duty clause for exposing workers to hot conditions leading to illness or death.
In the not-so-distant past, only the people in the front office used computers on the job. But these days, all kinds of workers—from the manufacturing floor to the construction worksite—regularly work on laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

Workers who drive as part of their employment--even if all they do is drive to and from off-site meetings during the workday--can expose you to significant liability if they're involved in an accident. To avoid liability, you need to identify drivers who could put you at risk and keep them off the road for work purposes.
Back injuries are among the most common types of injuries: nearly four out of five adults will experience a back injury at some point in their lives. Back injuries are also expensive, costing as much as $100,000 for a single injury, and time-consuming, keeping workers off the job for longer than the average work-related injury.
What do you do when a truck isn't the right vehicle, but a tractor won't do the job either? The answer is often the four-wheeler, also called an all-terrain vehicle or ATV. Farmers in Japan first began using these versatile vehicles in the 1960s. Today, in the United States, more than 11 million ATVs are driven for both work and recreation.
In September 2012, Governor Brown signed legislation intended to address steadily increasing workers' compensation costs in the state. Many of Senate Bill (S.B.) 863's major provisions went into effect on January 1, and the rest will be implemented in stages through January 1, 2014.
Scaffolds enable workers to perform work at elevation more safely than ladders or some other types of equipment, but like many useful pieces of equipment, they can also pose a hazard to workers. Scaffolds may collapse while being erected or dismantled, or if they are incorrectly assembled or overloaded. Workers who don't know the risks can fall.
Work at elevation always exposes workers to the hazard of a deadly fall. The use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), also known as aerial work platforms (AWPs), such as boom lifts and scissor lifts, can provide a measure of safety.
Whenever workers are welding, cutting, or brazing, they are at risk. Fire is the most obvious hazard, but compressed gas cylinders, electricity, and hazardous welding fumes also pose hazards. Check your welding, cutting, and brazing operations for safety with this checklist, adapted from federal OSHA.
At the Teichert Aggregates plant in Woodland (near Sacramento), workers were putting the plant back in operation after a reconfiguration. At around 7:45 a.m. that day, the plant's superintendent noticed a problem with the plant's Warman slurry pump.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, just five causes were responsible for nearly 97 percent of all fatal occupational injuries in 2011. Is your business at risk? Read the article to find out.
Work at elevation always exposes workers to the hazard of a deadly fall. The use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs, also known as aerial work platforms or AWPs), such as boom lifts and scissor lifts, can provide a measure of safety. Unfortunately, the enhanced safety provided by guardrails as well as the ability to have both hands free to work and a place to put tools and equipment are to some degree offset by the hazards of the elevating equipment itself.
Many people suffer from allergies. An unfortunate minority have allergies so severe that their reaction is a life-threatening condition called "anaphylaxis."
When Governor Brown signed a sweeping overhaul of California's workers' compensation system in September 2012, one of his goals was to control employers' workers' compensation costs, which had climbed precipitously in recent years.
The Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (OSHSB) was busy in the latter part of 2012, approving a slew of revisions to the Cal/OSHA standards that took effect in November.

Think fast! You're traveling at 70 miles per hour on a busy highway, and you just blew a tire! Or perhaps there's a light drizzle, and your car hit an unexpected slick spot and started to fishtail. Or maybe you put your foot on the brakes … and nothing happened.
Commercial fishing is tough work. The work surface is constantly wet, always moving, and buffeted by water and wind. Fishermen work long hours, sometimes with little sleep for long periods, in all kinds of weather. If they're injured on the job, their access to medical care is limited until the Coast Guard arrives.
