Arizona Labor Force Inc., a staffing company operating under the national trademarks of Labor Systems Job Center and Allied Forces Temporary Services, has earned the Safety Standard of Excellence mark from the American Staffing Association. The program, developed by ASA and the National Safety Council, promotes industry-wide safety best practices.
By participating in the Safety Standard of Excellence program, staffing companies, their temporary workers, and host employers can build a mutually beneficial relationship to help identify and mitigate workplace hazards and exposures, ensure clear communication between the staffing firm and host employer, and clearly delineate the safety responsibilities of each party.
“ASA congratulates Arizona Labor Force for its commitment to protecting and enhancing temporary worker safety, and for being among the first to earn the Safety Standard of Excellence mark,” said Stephen C. Dwyer, Esq., ASA general counsel. “Arizona Labor Force has tangibly demonstrated to clients, candidates, and employees its commitment to safety best practices.”
“Companies participating in the Safety Standard of Excellence program are to be commended for taking steps to put their companies’ practices under the microscope and seeking to be the best they can be for their temporary workers,” said Amy Harper, Ph.D., NSC director of workplace initiatives and Journey to Safety Excellence. “The commitment to safety demonstrated through Safety Standard of Excellence program participation should speak volumes to the clients with whom these staffing firms do business.”
“The safety of Arizona Labor Force temporary workers is the company’s top priority,” said Paul Turcotte, Arizona Labor Force president. “Arizona Labor Force is extremely proud to be the first daily pay, on-demand staffing company to achieve this recognition. The role of corporate employees and their relationships with the firm’s temporary workers and clients are the critical piece in promoting workplace safety and creating safety partnerships.”
