Staffing Best Practices: Employee Safety

Promoting and ensuring employee safety and well-being is the responsibility of every staffing firm. Through the establishment and implementation of employee safety best practices, staffing firms foster a workplace culture that increases employer and worker awareness of, commitment to, and involvement in employee safety and well-being.

Staffing firms and employees benefit from fewer workplace hazards and exposures, as well as fewer worker injuries, illnesses, and fatalities. Moreover, worker satisfaction, productivity, collaboration, recruitment, and retention all increase dramatically when employers promote and ensure safe and healthy work environments.

The Employee Safety Best Practices and Operating Information documents pertain to:

  • Staffing firms’ general operations and management of workplace incidents
  • Staffing firms’ internal and temporary employees
  • Staffing firms’ selection of, and interaction with, clients, secondary suppliers, vendor management systems; (VMSs) and managed service providers (MSPs)

These best practices have proven to increase productivity and the quality of the workforce, as well as decreasing turnover and reducing insurance costs. Ultimately, these corporate and field-level policies and procedures can increase profitability.
