    Good day all;
    I have my opinion, but would like input/council from the group regarding the intent of the requirement..."at multi-employer workplaces, the organization shall coordinate..."

    Can anyone give some examples of how they interpret/address this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm thinking this applies to such as safety on construction sites, John. The main contractor will have to make provision for all associated staff as well as sub-contract staff representatives - which if you've had any experience of major building can be very extensive and complex/complicated...

    While I'm not familiar with the standard in question here, my first thought did not go to construction, but rather to the rise in co-shared work spaces - my own organization "shares" office space with various other organizations in a downtown, metropolitan setting. But to Andy's point, these types of environments are "run" or operated by a main party, who would be responsible for ensuring awareness of roles, responsibilities, etc.
