The topic of the session is “Temp Employees In The Workplace." A recent study has shown that temporary workers experience about twice the rate of time-loss claims per 100 full-time equivalent (FTE) workers compared to their permanent peer-workers. In addition, numerous studies have shown that new workers are at greatly increased risk for work-related injury, and most temporary workers will be "new" workers multiple times a year.
Both host employers and staffing agencies have roles in complying with workplace health and safety requirements and they share responsibility for ensuring worker safety and health
This session will explore the responsibilities host employers and staffing agencies have in providing a safe and healthy workplace for all employees.
