Program Aims to Reduce Temporary and Contract Employee Injuries, Illnesses, and Fatalities
CoWorx Staffing Services, a staffing and recruiting firm headquartered in Morristown, NJ, has renewed 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 agencies, their placed employees, and clients can build knowledge and a mutually beneficial relationship to identify and mitigate or even eliminate workplace hazards and exposures, ensure clear communication between the agencies and clients, and clearly delineate responsibilities of each party—all intended to reduce temporary and contract employee injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.
Renewal of the mark involves the successful completion of an assessment process, conducted by NSC, to ensure the staffing agency is continually enhancing its safety program and utilizing industry best practices.
“CoWorx Staffing Services is extremely proud to renew the Safety Standard of Excellence mark,” said Jennifer Hertling, director of safety and loss prevention for CoWorx Staffing Services. “CoWorx is steadfast in our commitment to workplace safety, and this recognition confirms for employees and clients alike that the company puts safety first in everything it does.”
