The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and American Staffing Association Friday afternoon renewed their formal alliance to provide ASA members and other interested parties with information, guidance, and access to training resources to help protect the health and safety of temporary workers.
Through the alliance, OSHA and ASA have joined forces to
- Develop information on the recognition and prevention of workplace hazards and communicate such information to staffing firms, host employers, and temporary workers
- Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA or ASA conferences, local meetings, or other events
- Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding temporary worker safety best practices
“Protecting and enhancing temporary worker safety and well-being is a top priority of ASA and its member companies,” said Stephen C. Dwyer, Esq., ASA general counsel. “ASA greatly values its alliance with OSHA, and looks forward to continuing to work together in support of this important goal for the staffing industry.”
Since the alliance was originally entered into in May 2014, OSHA and ASA have collaborated through speaking engagements, video presentations, webinars, articles, and other means to raise awareness about temporary worker safety and educate staffing companies and host employers about their respective safety obligations.
