Want to Stand Out: Strive for the Mark of Safety Excellence

Safety comes first with any employer and staffing firms should say it proud with a Safety Standard of Excellence mark of the American Staffing Association (ASA). A safe workplace not only attracts more workers, but keeps work injuries down.

To find out more, go to www.americanstaffing.net/safety and complete the readiness assessment. You can also find out which staffing firms, including your closest competitors, have already earned the Excellence mark.

If you staff a high comp risk industry, find out what you have to do to reduce your injury rates to qualify for the program. The other benefit: Fewer injuries mean lower workers’ comp costs.

Staffing Firms: Track Overtime and Classcodes

A staffing firm in New Bedford, New Jersey was forced to settle a class action suit after it was alleged it had an employee working at two different locations but didn’t pay overtime. The company admitted no wrong doing but ended up paying $42,000 to settle.

In this case, the employee ended up working more than 40 hours a week at both a car wash and a fish processor. Not only was there failure to pay overtime, but both these jobs are in different class codes. Whether the employer was deliberately negligent, or just careless, is unknown.

But if a staffing firm has employees working at multiple locations or in different class codes, keeping close tabs on those class codes and hours will help avoid the legal pitfalls of non-compliance. Class codes have an impact on your workers’ comp premiums, which are determined by both risk and payroll.

Does Bad Press Spur Better Safety Practices?

Under the Obama administration it became common practice for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to publish press releases every time there was a death or a serious injury at an employer worksite. The hope was that the local press would spread the word, and the bad publicity would spur other employers to pay more attention to safety standards.

There is not definitive proof this practice actually lowered accident rates, but it certainly rattled employers who didn’t want their names associated with deaths and injuries. Statistics do show that when press releases went out, there were fewer injuries and safety violations. Under the Trump administration there have been fewer press releases.

Despite that, it doesn’t mean inspections are dropping off, and staffing firms, like all employers, should be aware of the fact that once key positions have been filled at OSHA, the press releases could start again. And in states such as California where it’s made its mission to strengthen state standards since Trump took office, this tool may be put to use. If the fear of bad publicity is helping employers pay more attention to safety, this means fewer accidents and lower workers’ comp costs.

Returning to Work As A Valued Employee

As employers, staffing firms should not only want an injured worker back to work, but in a meaningful and accommodating position. Employers run the risk of appearing insensitive and apathetic if they don’t value they’re injured workers. The job duties should not exceed medical restrictions.

Documentation should list the specific job duties and tasks for every position. A light duty position doesn’t mean that the employee can perform the task. Ignoring these details will make employers appear as if they don’t care whether the employee returns or not.

Return-to-work offers should be documented either electronically or in writing. This not only leaves a record, but truly shows that the employer wants the employee back. A phone call doesn’t leave a record, and if the employee doesn’t show up for work, it appears the employer didn’t value the employee’s contribution enough to send a written offer.

The position should also be productive and meaningful. If a light duty position is either distasteful or provides no benefit to the company, the employee may feel pressure to return to his old job, even though medical restrictions don’t allow it. It also appears that the employer is just trying to avoid paying temporary disability benefits.

These factors not only keep otherwise capable employees from returning to work but may result in higher workers’ comp costs because of the temporary total disability benefits employers will end up paying.
