In order to have a safe working environment, a company needs to provide specific benefits to its employees. Among these benefits is industry related insurance coverage to protect both individuals and businesses from injury, wrong-doing, and unexpected unemployment. A third party staffing center often needs to provide such protection for the workers they contract out. Staffing agency insurance allows both contracted employees and the participating businesses to be protected as either national or state regulations require.

 

Protection From the Unexpected

 

Insurance is often required to protect people against loss in a crisis. Manufacturing industries in particular are often associated with substantial risk to workers in and around heavy machinery. For example, if a staffing agency provides a manufacturer with a contracted welder, someone must be able to protect the welder in the event of a workplace related accident. Coverage provided by staffing agency insurance can include:

 

  • Workers compensation
  • Abusive acts
  • Crime
  • Employment practices
  • Auto liability

 

Adequate Coverage Brings Peace of Mind

 

Both temporary workers and the businesses who hire them through a staffing company need to know that both their rights and safety are protected.
