To help businesses comply with federal regulations for safety training of temporary workers, Waubonsee has developed a three-hour course covering the responsibilities of host employers and staffing agencies for the safety and health of temporary workers. This training can occur at the worksite or at one of Waubonsee’s four campus locations.

This training includes:

  • highly-qualified and credentialed workplace safety trainers
  • host employer and staffing agencies participation in one three-hour session
  • OSHA-approved training, resources, and materials

Content includes:

  • temporary worker rights and employer responsibilities under OSHA
  • joint responsibility of the staffing agency and the host employer for temporary worker safety and health
  • training temporary workers in a language and vocabulary that can be understood
  • hazard recognition and communication

This training accompanies the four-hour Basic Safety Training for Temporary Workers.
