Temporary Worker Safety: Essential Strategies For Host Employers And Staffing Agencies

About This Course:
As a share of the overall workforce, temporary workers are on the rise. Although the use of temporary workers can offer many benefits to employers and employees alike, as new workers several times per year, temps are more vulnerable to work-related injuries than their direct-hired counterparts—a situation that has attracted scrutiny and enforcement actions from OSHA.

Employers that hire or manage temporary workers need to ensure that these employees don’t fall through the cracks when it comes to safety. Whether you are a host employer or a staffing agency, your safety program must effectively deal with all workers, including temporary and contract workers.

A detailed contract specifying the safety role and responsibilities of each party is an excellent start, but it is not enough. OSHA not only looks at contractual language, but also at the actual practices in effect at the worksite, meaning that you must ensure that your written agreement is properly implemented and enforced and that your temporary workers are afforded the same level of protection as all other workers.
