Temporary employee record keeping

OSHA Temporary Employment and Host Company Recordables

When a staffing agency supplies temporary workers to a business, typically, the staffing agency and the staffing firm client (also known as the Host Employer) are joint employers of those workers. Both employers are responsible to some degree for determining the conditions of employment and for complying with the law. In this joint employment structure, questions regarding which employer is responsible for particular safety and health protections are common. This bulletin addresses how to identify who is responsible for recording work-related injuries and illnesses of temporary workers on the OSHA 300 log.
