For ASA Members: New Resource to Help Protect Temporary Workers

The U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, along with ASA and several other partners, recently released a set of new best practices to better protect temporary workers on the job. The new document, Protecting Temporary Workers: Best Practices for Host Employers, provides host employers with detailed best practices for evaluating and addressing workplace safety and health in a written contract; training for temporary workers and their worksite supervisors; and for reporting, response, and recordkeeping for injuries and illness.

The best practices in this new resource are applicable across industries and occupations. The document also includes real-life scenarios of how host employers might implement these best practices, as well as checklists that can be printed or completed electronically. Staffing firms can access a complementary slide deck to educate their host employer clients about these best practices. The document builds on resources developed under the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration Temporary Worker Initiative, launched in 2013. Learn more on the ASA Safety Matters web page.
