Safety Matters - Temporary & Contract Staffing

The Association of Canadian Search, Employment & Staffing Services (ACSESS) sponsored safety group will receive rebates totalling $900,681.07. The safety group, comprised of over 65 ACSESS member firm accounts, will be awarded the rebates for initiatives that significantly reduced both the severity and frequency of workplace injuries in 2009.

As a sponsor since 2001, ACSESS oversees member companies' participation, liaises with the WSIB and other health and safety organizations, recruits new safety group members, measures progress and regularly reports to the WSIB. The association also encourages members to share ideas and pool resources by organizing joint meetings and leadership workshops and helps participants to develop action plans.
