Complete the assignment
Call your ASI office at the completion of every assignment. Failure to notify your Staffing Manager of the completion of an assignment will be considered job abandonment, and unemployment benefits may be denied.
If the client supervisor compliments your work, suggest that you be requested by name when the next need arises. ASI always tries to fill such requests.(Never leave your telephone number with the client company. Tell them you can be contacted through the ASI office.)
If the client has questions about ASI’s policies, refer them to ASI. Do not answer policy questions yourself.

If you are using a swipe/punch card or signing in, it is your responsibility to ensure that this is done daily . This is necessary before we can issue your pay. Please supply your Staffing Manager with a void cheque for direct deposit.

- Detecting the presence or release of hazardous chemicals.
- Physical and health hazards of hazardous chemicals in the work area.
