It is an unfortunate fact that, on average, not a week goes by without news media coverage of the latest workplace homicide. Many believe that the acts of violence in the workplace are random and unpredictable, when in reality, many cases are completely preventable. This presentation provides large and small employers with the tools they need to prevent workplace violence and keep their business safe. It includes exercises and scenarios designed to prepare people for real-life situations.
Webinar Speaker – Jeff Lanza
Jeff Lanza was an FBI Special Agent for 20 years. He saw employee security issues from both sides of the equation. For four years, he was in charge of corporate security for the Kansas City region of the FBI. He later assessed and managed security issues by serving as an employee assistance specialist, helping agents and other personnel to handle job related stresses. He was also an investigator and spokesman for the FBI for most of his career.
Following the webinar, join other PLAA members in a roundtable discussion to share ideas on what Pittsburgh law firms are doing to prevent and respond to workplace violence. What protocols are being used by your firms for dealing with problem employees and do you have guidelines or action plans in the event of violence in your workplace.
During the roundtable discussion and social hour, appetizers and soft drinks will be served. A cash bar will also be available.
