An accident on a job site is a frightening experience that can quickly result in a problematic situation for the contractor. For example, if an employee is misclassified as an independent contractor and is hurt on the job site, the contractor’s workers’ compensation policy will be required to cover the injury. Workers’ compensation plays a large role in OSHA issues and can determine if the contractor is liable and for how much. There are various factors to consider when following and applying OSHA safety procedures that require an in-depth understanding to negate extensive liability exposure.
