Excelsior, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2015 -- According to Rob Gaines, MPH, CSP, Senior Director of Health & Safety Services for U.S. Compliance Corp, there is a link between temporary employees and an elevated risk of injury. Temporary employees have less experience and often receive less training, thereby increasing the risk of injury. OSHA has concerns that some employers may use temporary workers as a way to avoid meeting all their compliance obligations under the OSHA Act and other worker protection laws. Temporary workers get placed in a variety of jobs, including the most hazardous jobs; temporary workers are more vulnerable to workplace safety and health hazards. Temporary workers are often not given adequate safety and health training or explanations of their duties by either the temporary staffing agency or the host employer.
Host employers are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment for temporary workers - including ensuring that they receive OSHA required training such as Hazard Communication, Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), and Lockout/Tagout. OSHA's recordkeeping requirements must be fulfilled. Employers who do not include temporary employees in their EHS Program are at risk of violating OSHA standards and potential citations.
Privately held manufacturing firms must attain and sustain environmental, health, and safety compliance. Manufacturers rely heavily on employees to make the business productive and profitable. Lost workdays due to sickness or injury quickly diminish profits; employees want to know manufacturers care about their health and safety. U.S. Compliance Corp helps manufacturers avoid non-compliance lawsuits and fines by partnering and creating a customized program, practical to implement, easy to follow, and preventing workers' comp claims or costly citations.
