Portland, Ore. – Express Employment Professionals is a leader for Portland employment services that just recently earned the Safety Standard of ExcellenceSM Mark. The Safety Standard of Excellence program, developed by the American Staffing Association and the National Safety Council, promotes staffing industry-wide safety standards through a uniform national program. Participants access resources and tools to assist in preparing for on-site visits and assessments by program consultants, as well as best practice resources for ongoing improvement. The staffing companies that earn a passing assessment score can use the mark within their marketing collateral.
By participating in the Safety Standard of Excellence program, staffing companies, their placed workers, and host employers can build knowledge and a mutually beneficial relationship to identify and mitigate or even eliminate workplace hazards and exposures, ensure clear communication between the staffing firms and host employers, and clearly delineate responsibilities of each party—all intended to reduce temporary and contract employee injuries, illnesses, and fatalities.
Promoting and ensuring temporary and contract employee safety and well-being is the responsibility of every Portland employment agency. In 2013, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched the temporary worker initiative focused on compliance with safety and health requirements when temporary and contract workers are employed under the joint or dual employment of a staffing firm and a host employer. The initiative asserts both host employers and staffing firms have roles in complying with workplace health and safety requirements and they share responsibility for ensuring worker safety.
