The American Staffing Association joined the National Safety Council task force to support the Safe Actions for Employee Returns initiative—to develop a comprehensive, multifaceted plan to guide employers through the process of safely resuming traditional work and operations now and in a post-pandemic environment.
In partnership with NSC, ASA joins Fortune 500 companies, leading safety organizations, and public health professionals and experts to prioritize worker safety in the changed work environment.
Led by NSC, SAFER will issue recommendations and guidance for employers, including small and midsize companies, across a variety of industries. From best practices to data-driven recommendations, the task force will provide employers the tools and solutions they need to take action in complicated and challenging times, with simple, practical implementation resources.
“With SAFER, we are bringing the best minds together to ensure Americans have the safest transition back to work possible,” said Lorraine M. Martin, NSC president and chief executive officer. “We are thrilled to have the partnership of ASA to help us on our mission to make workplaces safer.”
“Ensuring worker safety must be more than a priority for employers—more than ever before it must be a cornerstone of the values and culture of every organization,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and CEO. “ASA is working with policymakers, industry leaders, and organizations such as NSC to develop new protocols to protect the health, safety, and well-being of workers across all sectors, today and in the postpandemic world.”
