I am a contractor and have subs that work for me on my site. Many times, they show up without a supervisor. Am I responsible for their actions?
According to OSHA….
1904.31(b)(3)

If an employee in my establishment is a contractor’s employee, must I record an injury or illness occurring to that employee? If the contractor’s employee is under the day-to-day supervision of the contractor, the contractor is responsible for recording the injury or illness. If you supervise the contractor employee’s work on a day-to-day basis, you must record the injury or illness.
1904.31(b)(4)
Must the personnel supply service, temporary help service, employee leasing service, or contractor also record the injuries or illnesses occurring to temporary, leased or contract employees that I supervise on a day-to-day basis? No, you and the temporary help service, employee leasing service, personnel supply service, or contractor should coordinate your efforts to make sure that each injury and illness is recorded only once: either on your OSHA 300 Log (if you provide day-to-day supervision) or on the other employer’s OSHA 300 Log (if that company provides day-to-day supervision).
