Live Webinar: Thursday, June 28, 2018

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Join this webinar to learn how the California draft Workplace Violence Prevention rules will impact your business.



Workplace violence is one of the leading causes of occupational injuries and fatalities in many industries—not only active shooter events, but assaults, harassment, bullying, and other forms of violence. Employers in California have a duty under the state’s IIPP rule to assess the workplace for hazards and implement appropriate protections—and workplace violence is not excluded from this responsibility.

In addition, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health has recently held advisory meetings on the agency’s draft rules for Workplace Violence Prevention in General Industry.  Based on the state’s existing rules for healthcare employers, these draft rules would apply to almost all employers within the state, requiring that businesses develop and implement a written workplace violence prevention plan and conduct training on workplace violence prevention.  When the rules are ultimately adopted in some form, California will become the first state to issue general industry workplace violence rules.

Even in the absence of a specific regulation, California employers need to be aware of their obligations under the state’s Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) rule to assess the workplace for workplace violence hazards and implement effective preventive and corrective measures. Employers shouldn’t wait for the workplace violence standard to become final to ensure that their IIPPs effectively address workplace violence risks and develop safeguards to protect workers today.

Join us on June 28th when Andrew Sommer and Daniel Deacon of Conn Maciel Carey in San Francisco will discuss the draft Workplace Violence Prevention rules, the status of rulemaking, and what you can do now to prepare.

You’ll learn:

  • How California’s IIPP rule affects your obligations to protect employees from violence on the job
  • How to assess your risks for workplace violence and develop appropriate protective measures
  • What to expect from the proposed General Industry Workplace Violence Standard
  • How to develop and implement a Workplace Violence Prevention Plan
  • Status of rulemaking over this proposed standard
