Workplace Violence Prevention 2018: Duty to Worker Safety Under Gun Control and Concealed Carry Laws
By Ana Ellington, Legal Editor

Dozens of states have laws that protect workers when taking guns to work. How far though, do those rights extend? At BLR’s Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium in Savannah, Georgia, March 6 and 7, 2018, the Packing Heat: Your Organization’s Duty to Ensure Worker Safety While Respecting Legal Bounds Under States’ Gun Control and Concealed Carry Laws session will address your legal rights and obligations concerning guns-at-work laws.

This session—presented by Jeffrey Zisner, CPP, president and CEO of AEGIS Security & Investigations, Inc.—will explore the types of protections to which workers are entitled for exercising their right to carry a gun on your property under applicable state laws, and what you can do to ensure that they comply with your internal policies designed to maintain a safe, healthful work environment.

In addition to the “Packing Heat” session, BLR’s Workplace Violence Prevention Symposium, geared to both HR and safety professionals, has many more sessions that will focus on tactical strategies for reducing the risk of security breaches, workplace violence, and legal liabilities through powerful keynotes, sessions, and workshops.
The nation’s leading practical conference on workplace violence prevention provides practical workplace violence prevention training, including:

  • Domestic issues concerns;
  • Dealing with conflicting ideological beliefs;
  • Compliant employment screening practices;
  • Cyberbullying and electronic harassment;
  • Dealing with worker mental health-related issues;
  • And much more.

As always, there will be many opportunities to network with peers and expert presenters and share ideas of what is working—and not working—in the world of workplace violence prevention. In addition, the conference program has been preapproved for recertification credits that can be applied toward professional development.
