Safety Culture For Temporary Workers: Tips To Legally Protect Your Company And Your On-Demand Workforce
|Date / Time:
As the business ecosystem changes, gone are the days when a full-time, permanent workforce performed all of a company’s primary functions.
These days, temporary workers are being used more and more, providing organizations with the ability to use workers’ skills on-demand, while workers enjoy the flexibility of multiple and varied assignments.
OSHA recognizes the new reality and launched its Temporary Worker Initiative in 2013. The Initiative attempts to provide a clear understanding of how both the host employer and the staffing agency need to work together to address safety and health related issues.
OSHA wants to make sure that temporary employees are provided a safe work environment and are included in the safety culture of your organization.
While the employment relationship is different, the safety and health issues you need to consider are the same. But, how can you ensure that the safety culture and programs you’ve established for your permanent workforce will translate to your temporary workers?
Join us for an in-depth webinar that will address how temporary workers fit within your overall safety culture and how to ensure that you’re addressing temporary worker safety training in a thorough and compliant manner.
Our presenter, seasoned safety lawyer Courtney Malveaux, will provide a clear understanding of how to ensure that all temporary workers are successfully included and integrated into the safety culture, programs, and policies of your organization. He’ll offer recommendations for meeting your safety culture goals in a way that addresses legal concerns arising from contractual agreements, performance requirements, and expectations—so you can protect your organization while keeping temporary workers safe.
