WHO HAS BEEN CITED BY OSHA?
Temporary staffing agencies Genco; Abacus-The Corporate Services Co.; Corporate Resource Services Inc.; Remedy Intelligent Staffing Inc., and Staffmark, were each cited by OSHA for one serious violation for failure to perform a hazard assessment of the facility before assigning employees to determine if hazards existed. These five temporary staffing agencies each face $6,000 in penalties proposed by OSHA.
Consider this scenario:
Your agency sends workers to five (5) different host employers at five (5) different work sites. You are cited for a serious violation for failure to perform a hazard assessment at each location. Now do the math. That’s losing $30,000.
HOW CAN YOU AVOID LOSING MONEY?
