Today at the ASA Staffing Law Conference, the heads of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the American Staffing Association signed an alliance agreement to help provide ASA members and others with information, guidance, and access to training resources that will help them protect the health and safety of temporary workers, and understand the rights of workers and the responsibilities of employers.
“Through this alliance with ASA, we will increase outreach to staffing firms and host employers and provide information and education that is vital to protecting temporary workers,” said David Michaels, Ph.D., MPH, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health.
“Worker wellness and safety have long been a top priority of the American Staffing Association and its member companies,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “We are proud to participate in this voluntary cooperative relationship with OSHA to raise awareness of OSHA’s initiatives, increase training and education, and enhance outreach and communication, especially among staffing clients.”
