- Safety Liability at Multi-Employer Worksites
February 21, 2019
8:30 am - 11:30 am
Courtney Malveaux of Jackson Lewis will be delivering a presentation titled Safety Liability at Multi-Employer Worksites. This meeting will be a joint meeting with the Metropolitan Washington Federal Safety and Health Committee.
Multiple employers work together at the same site all the time. So if someone gets hurt or if OSHA knocks, how do you know you have done enough to protect your company? Safety liability can be serious business if you have not taken proper precautions to establish each employer’s roles and duty of care before beginning work. This presentation will arm you with the foresight to plan for the unexpected, steps you can take to minimize your legal exposure, and what OSHA looks for when identifying the responsible employer.
Mr. Malveaux represents employers cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and other regulatory agencies. He also advises and represents employers in employment law matters, including retaliation claims, employment discrimination, unemployment benefits and wage claims. Mr. Malveaux also represents business associations in state and federal legislative and regulatory matters.
Mr. Malveaux represents industry on the Virginia Safety and Health Codes Board, and pulled together a broad coalition of business and safety associations to pass a first-in-the-nation law to make voluntary compliance a permanent part of a state Occupational Safety and Health Act.
Before joining Jackson Lewis, Mr. Malveaux enforced occupational safety and health law and other state and federal labor laws as Virginia’s Labor Commissioner and as President of the National Association of Government Labor Officials.
