Jobsite safety responsibility continuing education course. Presenting lessons learned from litigation. Part 1 focuses on safety responsibilities of project owners and design firms, and addresses independent contractor principles. Combine parts 1, 2 and 3 for a 1 credit hour course registered with AIA.
A quote from the introduction of Kent Holland’s talk:
Once the project owner has executed a contact with its independent contractor, delegating jobsite safety responsibility to that firm, the owner generally has no legal liability for injury to the employees of the independent contractors – unless the owner asserts some control over the means, methods or procedures of the contractors’ work or takes some action at the project that causes or contributes to an injury.
