Workplace violence affects some two million workers each year and has become a major concern for employers throughout the country. No employer or employee is immune from becoming a victim of the violent acts or threats of co-workers or outside intruders, and many employers are “soft targets” for violence. For these reasons, CBIA is pleased to present a pair of workshops on how employers can prepare for and protect workers and worksites from violent situations. These workshops will focus on management commitment and implementation, worksite analysis, and hazard assessment and control. They are designed to complement each other, and can be attended either individually or as a set.
Worksite Assessment and Countermeasures
This session will speak to the preparation of a company’s worksites against various workplace violence scenarios and is targeted to senior management, safety and security personnel, human resources, and facilities. Issues to be examined include physical plant and procedural vulnerability assessments, company asset identification and protection, hardening of soft targets, threat identification, and steps to deter perpetrators from choosing your worksite as a target.
We will also show you how to contain and minimize loss if violence actually occurs. Sample protocols and procedures will be reviewed, which can be adapted by each employer to enhance worker survival and recovery.
