At Work At Home On the Road

Welcome to the Safety Standard of Excellence Program

  • ​Your firm has taken an important first step in ensuring the safety of temporary workers. This program will help you understand staffing industry safety best practices, collaborate with host employers and achieve the prestigious Safety Standard of Excellence program Mark.

    Safety Best Practices

    When employers provide safe and healthy work environments, employees not only benefit from fewer injuries and fatalities, but worker satisfaction, collaboration, recruitment and retention also increase dramatically. The SSE program outlines safety best practices for staffing firms to increase productivity, quality and, ultimately, profitability.

    Earn the SSE Program Mark

    The SSE program Mark lets potential clients know your staffing firm has achieved a level of safety performance well beyond compliance. To achieve the Mark, staffing firms are scored based on the criteria in the SSE program assessment, which compiles best practices from ASA, NSC and OSHA's Temporary Worker Initiative.

    SSE Program Tools

    In this section you'll find details on safety best practices for staffing firms, along with guides, sample templates and forms to help improve what you may already have in place to keep your temporary workers safe.

    Encourage Host Employer Safety

    Share with clients a variety of practical tools, articles and white papers that represent some of what is contained in the NSC Journey to Safety Excellence program. The Journey is designed for safety practitioners in organizations of all sizes and serves thousands of individual registrants. As an SSE program participant, you have automatic access to these valuable resources.
