Working Safely

Handling shared workspaces

As many employers share workplaces (for example, two companies may share a floor), some kind of guidance from the DOL on the scope of the employer's obligation to maintain a safe workplace in such cases would be very helpful. In such cases, who has the obligation to keep communal facilities such as restrooms or pantries clean and safe? What recourse does an employer have if a co-tenant employer fails to abide by recommended safety measures?
