What’s the webinar about?

Workplace violence continues to be concerning and problematic for employers because it’s an employer’s duty to provide a work environment that is free from known and recognized hazards. OSHA provides guidance for employers to ensure they identify and mitigate workplace violence so that it does not present a hazard to employees. This guidance includes the importance of engineering and administrative controls and proper reporting of incidents. In this session, we will discuss the importance of understanding the threat of workplace violence and how your organization can be prepared for an event. We’ll discuss risk factors, security protocols, and methods to recognize and respond to threats. Join us to learn how to implement an effective program and avoid any OSHA General Duty Clause violations.
