RESOURCES FOR OUR CURRENT EMPLOYEES
YOUR SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
You can be confident that your recruiter will ensure you are prepared and properly equipped for your assignment. We also work closely with the employers at worksites to ensure communication about health safety efforts and initiatives are ongoing.
You are never expected to work in dangerous or unsafe work environments. If you ever feel the conditions in which you are working are not safe or you are asked to undertake work that you feel is unsafe, please do not hesitate to refuse the work. In this situation, you can reach out to an onsite occupational health and safety representative if one is available. Please always also call the About Staffing office at 403-508-1000 to discuss the situation with your recruiter immediately.
In the event of an injury, please get the care required if it is a medical emergency and call the About Staffing office when it is safe and/or reasonable to do so for further instructions and assistance.
For more information on workplace safety, please visit the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

How do I send in my direct deposit information?
To provide your tax or direct deposit information please call us at 403-508-1000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
