As defined by The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) a “workplace violence” incident is a verbal, written, or physically aggressive threat or attack intended to intimidate, cause injury or death to others in a place of employment.
Every workplace is in danger of experience occupational violence, but what can be done to mitigate the risks and reduce hazards? In December, join MACo for a panel session hosted by the Human Resources Affiliate for an in depth discussion of keeping your workplace safe in today’s age at the Winter #MACoCon. Attendees will learn about best practices in needs assessments, visitor requirements, security protocols, violence prevention, abuse leave, critical communications, and weapons rules.
Here are more details:
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.
