OSHA & Staffing Employee Safety
The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched a temporary worker safety initiative to protect the rights, safety, and well-being of temporary workers employed and assigned by staffing firms to clients.
ASA supports OSHA’s efforts, as temporary workers are staffing firms’ most important asset. ASA and OSHA have entered into a formal alliance to:
- Develop information to clarify the respective safety responsibilities of staffing firms and clients and their roles in improving the safety of temporary workers
- Communicate such information to staffing firms, clients, and temporary workers
- Share information among OSHA personnel and industry safety and health professionals regarding temporary worker safety best practices
