Protecting Temporary Workers: Roles and Responsibilities of Host Employers and Staffing Firms

Amy K. Harper, Ph.D., director for workplace safety initiatives, National Safety Council
Sharon Pancamo, dual CSHO, occupational safety manager, Elwood Staffing Services
Gary D. Lescallett, assistant regional administrator for enforcement programs, U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration
Promoting and ensuring temporary worker safety and well-being is the responsibility of every staffing firm. In fact, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Temporary Worker Initiative says that both host employers and staffing firms have roles in complying with workplace health and safety requirements, and that they share responsibility for ensuring temporary worker safety and health. Amy Harper of the National Safety Council will join industry safety expert Sharon Pancamo and OSHA assistant regional administrator Gary Lescallett to review a fictional case study, created jointly by ASA and NSC in alliance with OSHA, using OSHA citations as a guideline. Pancamo will also share her experience with the Safety Standard of Excellence® program, created by ASA and NSC.

2:30–3:30 p.m.
