Employer Obligations to Prevent Violence: Trends and Action Items
Workplace violence continues to increase across industries and organizations, and experts predict the trend won’t subside anytime soon. Meanwhile, OSHA and other lawmakers are increasingly scrutinizing employers’ workplace violence prevention efforts and imposing new requirements to keep employees safe.
Most workplace violence is actually preventable if companies take proactive steps and have a prevention plan in place. However, many organizations don’t know where to start.
Join this webinar to hear from national experts Eugene Rugala, a former leader of the FBI’s National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime and workplace violence consultant to corporations across the country, and Elizabeth Bille, SVP of workplace culture at EVERFI and former general counsel of SHRM, on how to do just that. You’ll learn about trends and best practices, including:
- the current state of workplace violence and why it is much more common than you may think
- current regulatory enforcement trends
- actionable steps you can take to set up a workplace violence prevention plan in your organization
Elizabeth and Gene will discuss what they are hearing in the industry, ways they have set up successful programs, and how you can work to set up a program that works best for your organization.
