Being Safe and Secure in the Workplace

Join HR Daily on October 8 for a webinar on work-place safety and security, “Why a Good Emergency Action Plan Should Include More Than Natural Disasters!

James Davis, Editor of HR Daily, on the webinar:

While it is never pleasant to think about worst-case scenarios, it is vastly important to have an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) in place. Because employee safety is such a high priority, one must have a plan in place that explains what to do in this situation. In this webinar, you’ll learn best safety practices for preparing and reacting to a violent attacker situation, the 3 tiers of response to a violent situation, and key elements of an EAP.

This program has been approved for 1 recertification credit hour toward PHR and SPHR recertification through the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI).

Learn more about what is happening locally and statewide to address workplace safety at the MACo Winter Conference Session, “Are you Prepared? Keeping Your Workplace Safe and Secure.”

Title: Are You Prepared? Keeping Your Workplace Safe and Secure

Description: The workplace needs to be safe to be effective – that’s true for both the private and public sectors. But “safe” doesn’t mean what it used to: an uptick in violence and new avenues for stalking now threaten your employees’ safety. Existing OSHA requirements to provide a workplace free from recognized safety and health hazards may include preventing acts of workplace violence. Participants will learn about best practices in needs assessments, visitor requirements, security protocols, violence prevention, abuse leave, critical communications, and weapons rules.
