With workplace violence attacks becoming more prevalent in the US, organizations need to be prepared for worst-case scenarios. Attacks in the workplace average three deaths and up to 12 injuries per attack, and lawsuits average $500,000 with jury awards averaging $3 million. Worse yet, the loss of friends and colleagues in the workplace is devastating…and any commercial setting is a potential target.

This year, the nation’s leading workplace violence prevention conference features an all-new agenda outlining tactical strategies for reducing the risk of security breaches, workplace violence, and legal liabilities under OSHA’s general duty clause and other laws. Designed for safety managers and HR professionals, this immersive 1.5-day conference features powerful keynotes, substantive breakout sessions, and skills-building workshops.
