As a full-service staffing agency, we here at KB Staffing take the safety of our workers very seriously, and it’s important to us that our clients do the same. OSHA regulations mandate that staffing agencies as well as the client companies are equally responsible for the safety of employees. This requirement is in place to make sure that all parties are aware of workplace hazards and are able to implement appropriate procedures and training.
The key to ensuring the safety of all temp employees and temp-to-perm workers is communication. That means that we have a responsibility to be aware of what workplace conditions are like before sending an employee to a job site. We need to know that our client companies take action to prevent and correct hazards in a reasonable manner, and that they comply with OSHA standards.
Training is an integral part of job safety. We provide general safety and health training, while the client companies provide training specific to that job site and assignment.
Some of the steps we take to protect the health and safety of our temp employees are:
- Inquiring into the conditions of the workplace.
- Determining what hazards may be present at a job site, and making sure that appropriate training and safety gear is used.
- Verifying that the client company is indeed providing the necessary training and safety gear.
- Listening to employees and responding quickly to their concerns.
When safety is ignored, we all lose. Our workers know they will get the training they need to do their job safely and effectively.
