CCS Townhall – Site Safety & Your Contract

Wed, Dec. 4th - 8:00 am

“Site Safety and Your Contract – Who’s Legally Responsible for Injuries on your Job Site?

Construction job sites can be dangerous. Indiana contractors have statutory responsibilities for the safety of their own employees, but what obligations do they have toward the employees of their subcontractors, other contractors and third-parties? How can your contract impact this analysis? How can your conduct give rise to a duty of safety? Join CCS for its annual Town Hall where we will have an in-depth discussion on job site safety and who may be held liable for job site injuries.

Thad Schurter of Drewry Simmons Vornehm will start the Town Hall with a discussion of recent Indiana cases that have addressed the issue of contractually assumed safety duties and when those duties may become non-delegable for construction managers, general contractors and subcontractors.

The Town Hall will feature a panel discussion with the various aspects of the construction team and how they work to manage risk on their projects.

Attendees will learn:

  • How the chain of contracts can impact their responsibility for site safety
  • The different roles and responsibilities of owners, contractors and design professionals for site safety
  • How to reduce risk on multi-employer job sites
  • How to effectively protect your employees as well as others on the job site
  • How to build a productive and safe work setting
