Marathon Staffing Services Agrees to Implement Safety Changes at All Work Sites

The temporary staffing company was cited for a serious violation in December 2014

A temporary staffing company has agreed to enhance workplace safety protections for workers at all work sites as part of a settlement agreement with the DOL.

OSHA cited Marathon Staffing Services Inc. for a serious violation in December 2014 for not providing hearing tests for its employees exposed to high noise levels while working on assignment at Concrete Systems Inc. in Hudson, New Hampshire.

According to a report, Marathon will have a qualified safety and health professional review and update a checklist to address foreseeable safety and health concerns at client workplaces. The list will be used to conduct initial and periodic safety and health inspections or audits at client work sites to ensure working conditions meet OSHA standards.

Marathon will also provide comprehensive safety and health training for its account executives and sales representatives. The company will develop, with each of its clients, written contracts specifying their respective responsibilities to develop safety and health programs applicable to each workplace where Marathon will supply temporary employees.

"This is an example of what suppliers of temporary employees should be doing," said Kim Stille, OSHA's regional administrator for New England. "Both host employers and staffing agencies have critical roles in complying with workplace health and safety requirements. They share responsibility for ensuring worker safety and health. Each employer should consider hazards it can prevent and correct, and no employer - whether a temporary staffing agency or a client company - should ever send an employee into harm's way."
