Violence, Shootings & Safety: Considerations for Your 2018 Safety Plan
We’ve all seen the headlines recently. Violent acts can strike anywhere, anytime, and no business or industry is immune. Keeping your staff, customers, and facility safe through the unexpected should be a top priority. Join us as we discuss real life events, lessons learned, factors to consider in your planning, and insurance coverages that may respond to certain scenarios.
According to OSHA, nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year, and the cost associated with such tragedies is estimated at 4 billion dollars annually. In addition to the threat of injury or death, workplace violence can take a toll on the workplace through property damage, lost sales, decreased business, increased absenteeism, turnover, high stress levels, decreased productivity, damaged morale, increased workers’ comp claims, costs related to post-incident counseling, and negligence claims.
This thought-provoking discussion will assist you in thinking through scenarios that can happen on your premises. Although this seminar will benefit those in many industries and positions, it will be most useful to those in the hospitality or property management industries or to any facilities with a large number of employees or customers on-site.
