Temporary staffing agencies and host employers are jointly responsible for temporary employee's safety and health because they share control over the employee. They must provide temporary workers the same high level of safety and health as permanent workers. The issue is so important that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration created a separate page on itsr website and a temporary worker initiative to address it. The presenters review the issues and highlight the staffing agency's and host employer's responsibilities.

Learning Objectives:
List at least two responsibilities of staffing agencies
List at least two responsibilities of host employers
Describe the injury and illness recording requirements for temporary employees
