Take Advantage of ASA Resources—Get Employees Back to Work Safely

As part of a global endeavor to help employees return safely to work amid the pandemic, ASA has launched the Safely Back to Work initiative to lead efforts in the U.S. The initiative and new website at americanstaffing.net/safelybacktowork is based on the association’s work with the World Employment Confederation, Adecco Group, ManpowerGroup, and Randstad NV.

The result is an online collection of safety-focused resources for employers and a high-profile pledge to the safety of all employees who are returning to job sites. ASA urges all of its members to download and use the free resources and take the pledge.

  • Download the ASA Safely Back to Work Best Practice Protocols, which include 77 measures to help further employee safety in different industry sectors and work environments.
  • Download the Covid-19 Safety Checklist, developed specifically for staffing company use by the law firm Seyfarth Shaw.
  • Take the Safely Back to Work Pledge to show your company’s commitment to the health and welfare of your corporate and temporary and contract employees.

Once you submit your pledge to safety, your name and company name will appear in a real-time leaderboard on the page. Share your commitment on social media channels and encourage your colleagues to do the same. The Safely Back to Work site provides a variety of graphics for use on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and ASA Central. Use the hashtag #SafelyBackToWork and tag @StaffingTweets.
