Does Your Company’s Safety Generate Business?

Amy Harper, Ph.D., director for workplace safety initiatives, National Safety Council
Rob Loose, corporate safety and risk manager, MAU Inc.

Answering clients’ staffing needs, selecting safe candidates, and complying with the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Temporary Worker Initiative are daily challenges. The need to be safety-savvy grows as clients continue to push suppliers to fulfill ever-increasing safety needs. The National Safety Council and American Staffing Association designed the Safety Standard of Excellence® program to help staffing companies adopt safety best practices. This presentation will highlight pitfalls of past staffing practices in the areas of recruiting, training, coordination with host employers, and incident management, and explore a future where staffing companies win business by supplying safety solutions in a staffing and recruiting context.
