Executive Summary

Occupational Safety and Health Appeals Board

Summary of Harris Construction Company Inc. – decision after reconsideration

Employer, a general contractor, was cited as a “controlling employer” under the multi-employer worksite standard (section 336.10; Labor Code 6400(b)) after an employee of a subcontractor was injured. The Appeals Board held that an employer’s status as a “controlling employer” depends on whether it was in a position to abate the hazard in question.
