Event Description

It’s estimated that more than 40 million U.S. workers quit their jobs in 2021. As a result, employers are having to navigate the ripple effects from this phenomenon known as the “great resignation.” The unprecedented change in the U.S. labor market, combined with the struggle to find quality job candidates, is causing many employers to consider hiring temporary workers. Hiring temp workers comes with unique health, safety and compliance considerations for both the host employer and the staffing agency.

This webinar will clarify the host employer’s and staffing agency’s responsibilities, as well as identify key federal regulations that pertain to this shared working relationship, including:

  • Hazard assessment
  • Training
  • Injury and illness recordkeeping
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Whistleblower rights

We’ll save 10-15 minutes at the end to answer your questions. Register today to gain a clearer understanding of your responsibilities as they pertain to temp workers at your facility.
