Automation Personnel Services, Inc. Earns Safety Standard of Excellence® Mark from the American Staffing Association

January 24, 2019

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 24, 2019--Automation Personnel Services, Inc. recently earned the Safety Standard of Excellence® Mark. The Safety Standard of Excellence program, developed by the American Staffing Association and the National Safety Council, promotes staffing industry-wide safety standards through a uniform national program. Participants access resources and tools to assist in preparing for on-site visits and assessments by program consultants, and best practice resources for ongoing improvement. Only companies that earn a passing assessment score can use the mark.

Promoting and ensuring temporary and contract employee safety and well-being is the responsibility of every staffing company. In 2013, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched the temporary worker initiative focused on compliance with safety and health requirements when temporary and contract workers are employed under the joint or dual employment of a staffing firm and a host employer. The initiative asserts both host employers and staffing firms have roles in complying with workplace health and safety requirements and they share responsibility for ensuring worker safety.

“The Safety of our employees has always been a priority. This designation validates our efforts to provide a safe work environment for all employees.” - Stephen Nordness, President, CEO
