Addressing Workplace Reproductive Hazards
Brought to you by the ASA Industrial section.
It should be a paramount goal of all companies to maintain the health of their workers and continually improve their safety practices. One risk that temporary workers may face, and that their staffing firm employers may not understand, is exposure to hazardous chemicals. Do you know how to protect temporary workers from hazards that could affect their health or fertility—or even be brought home with them to cause harm to others? Researchers at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, part of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are working to provide data, education, and resources to help staffing firms address physical and chemical safety for the employees they place.
During this webinar, attendees will learn:
- What causes hazardous chemical exposure and other types of job hazards
- What federal and state laws address workplace hazards
- How workplace hazards can lead to certain reproductive health problems
- Best practices for avoiding workplace hazards, especially reproductive hazards
