Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

MIDDLETON, MA -- BLR, a provider of employment, safety, and HR compliance information and technology, announced the fourth annual Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium 2019 will return March 14–15 in San Antonio, Texas.

Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium 2019 will teach attendees how to prepare their organizations for a worst-case scenario and mitigate the increasing likelihood of a workplace violence incident with actionable tactics for emergency response and crisis and risk management.

Attendees of Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium 2019 will learn strategies to:

  •     Understand the link between substance abuse and workplace violence.
  •     Handle delicate workplace issues like domestic violence and sexual harassment.
  •     Identify and prevent cyberbullying in the workplace.
  •     Create an effective workplace violence prevention program with a limited staff and budget.
  •     Protect and train employees to react during an active shooter or other high-risk incident.
  •     Utilize your corporate culture to be proactive against workplace violence risks.
  •     Employ compliant employee screening and drug-testing practices to prevent workplace attacks.
  •     Understand OSHA's expectations when it comes to reporting injuries related to workplace violence.

"Two million Americans report being victims of workplace violence every year," says Amanda Czepiel, JD, senior managing editor of EHS for BLR. "It's vital that HR and safety managers work towards making safer workplaces for all employees. Through risk assessments, legal employee screening, effective safety training and the creation of a team to handle workplace crises, business leaders can create a workplace with a nonviolent culture that protects employees and encourages communication to improve safety."

The event will take place at the Sheraton Gunter Hotel in San Antonio. For more information, please visit http://workplaceviolence.blr.com.
