Protecting Temporary Workers: Best Practices for Host Employers

The future of work brings new challenges to occupational safety and health, including how to best protect and promote the safety and health of a workforce employed through a variety of non-standard work arrangements. Temporary agency workers (hereafter “temporary workers” or “TWs”) are those who are paid by a staffing company (SC) and assigned to work for a host employer (HE), including both short- and long-term assignments. This document is intended to apply to HEs across all industries that employ (or are planning to employ) TWs at their worksites.
