Safety of all of TempForce employees is the constant concern of TempForce. Every precaution has been taken to provide a safe workplace. TempForce meets with management of our Client companies to plan and implement further improvements in our safety program. Common sense and personal interest in safety are still the greatest guarantees of the safety of our employees at work, on the road, and at home. We take safety seriously and any willful or habitual violation of safety rules will be considered cause for dismissal. TempForce is sincerely concerned for the health and well being of each member of the team.
The cooperation of every employee is necessary to make this company a safe place in which to work. We require that any unsafe conditions or hazards immediately be reported to job-site supervisor s or to a member of the TempForce Staff or Job Site Safety Team committee. We strongly encourage earnest consideration, by our employees, of the rules of safety presented to our employees by poster signs, discussions with supervisor, posted department rules, and regulations published in the safety booklet. TempForce urges our employees to begin right by always thinking of safety as jobs are performed or as new ones are learned.
Accident Reporting Requirements. Any injury at work—no matter how small—must be reported immediately to job site supervisor and to TempForce Staff or the HealthBridge, TempForce’s company nurse, and receive first aid attention. Serious conditions often arise from small injuries if they are not cared for at once.
TempForce is insured for worker’s compensation insurance and TempForce requires all accidents to be reported to job-site supervisors and TempForce immediately. If the accident happens outside TempForce’s operating hours, the TempForce company nurse, HEALTHBRIDGE, must be notified at 1-800-633-4350. A contact card with this information is issued to all employees during orientation. All medical treatment must be authorized by TempForce or HEALTHBRIDGE.
TempForce employees who are involved in an on-the-job-accident are required to consent to a post-accident drug screen.

TempForce’s Safety Incentive Program. Each week if an employee is not involved in an on-the-job accident, the employees’ names go into a drawing for $100.00 Safety Bonus to be given away at the end of each month. Our incentive program has helped to raise our employees’ awareness of Safety at work. Our winners are recognized in their Branch Location and their picture is posted in our front office.
Specific Safety Rules and Guidelines for TempForce Employees. To ensure your safety, and that of your coworkers, please observe and obey the following rules and guidelines:
Safety checklist. It’s every employee’s responsibility to be on the lookout for possible hazards. If you spot one of the conditions on the following list—or any other possible hazardous situation—report it to your supervisor/TempForce immediately.
Safety equipment. Your supervisor will see that you receive the protective clothing and equipment required for your job. Use them as instructed and take care of them. You will be charged for loss or destruction of these articles only when it occurs through negligence.
Safety shoes. The company will designate which jobs and work areas require safety shoes. Under no circumstances will an employee be permitted to work in sandals or open-toe shoes.
Safety glasses. The wearing of safety glasses is mandatory where instructed by your supervisor. Strict adherence to this policy can significantly reduce the risk of eye injuries.
Seat belts. All employees must use seat belts and shoulder restraints (if available) whenever they operate a vehicle on company business. The driver is responsible for seeing that all passengers in front and rear seats are buckled up.
Good housekeeping. Your work location should be kept clean and orderly. Keep machines and other objects (merchandise, boxes, shopping carts, etc.) out of the center of aisles. Clean up spills, drips, and leaks immediately to avoid slips and falls.
Place trash in the proper receptacles.
In addition to these rules, a Safety Guidelines Handbook will be issued to employees at the time of orientation.
