Tidewater Staffing, a staffing agency providing workforce solutions for ship repair, manufacturing, and warehouse employers headquartered in southeast Virginia, 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 agencies, their temporary and contract employees, and host employers can build a mutually beneficial relationship to help identify and mitigate workplace hazards and exposures, ensure clear communication between the staffing company and host employer, and clearly delineate the safety responsibilities of each party.
“ASA congratulates Tidewater Staffing for its commitment to protecting and enhancing worker safety by earning the Safety Standard of Excellence mark,” said Stephen C. Dwyer, Esq., ASA general counsel. “Tidewater Staffing has tangibly demonstrated to clients, candidates, and employees its dedication to safety best practices.”
“Staffing agencies 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 and contract workforce,” said Amy Harper, Ph.D., CSP, NSC director of workplace strategy and consulting operations. “The commitment to safety demonstrated through Safety Standard of Excellence program participation should speak volumes to the clients with whom these companies do business.”
“Safety is and has always been at the forefront of our minds here at Tidewater Staffing,” said Jay Prock, president of the agency. “Our safety programs are well-designed and implemented across the company, and this recognition from ASA and NSC is further indication that we are doing the right thing for our associates and host employers.”
