Safety Insider: Temporary Worker Safety
A Tactical Playbook for Reducing Liability and Complying with OSHA Requirements

Temporary workers are at a higher rate of risk for injury than temporary workers in the workplace. According to OSHA, most of these injuries and fatalities sustained by temporary employees are directly tied to poor training and provision of safety equipment compared to full-time employees.

OSHA stresses that both the host employer and hiring/staffing agency are responsible for the safety of temporary workers. Regulations are put in place to identify key areas that should be addressed prior to placement — such as training, hazard recognition, clear documentation of roles and responsibilities, and compliant illness and injury tracking — OSHA will fine employers and staffing organizations that fail to qualify these regulatory requirements with their temporary workers.

This Insider Report focuses on keeping employers and staffing agencies compliant with the OSHA regulations protecting temporary workers. The contents of this report help align organizational goals with OSHA regulations and expectations to create safe and effective workplace safety strategies for all employees.
