Concealed Carry in the workplace & Workplace violence
Join PBSHRM for our April Luncheon on Tuesday April 9th at Mid-Cities Community Church Room AC2 from 11:30-1:00 for an engaging session on "Concealed Carry in the Workplace & Workplace Violence."
In every workplace, managers and Human Resources staff need to spend time thinking about how they want to deal with concealed weapons in the workplace. Concealed weapon permit laws differ from state to state and country to country, so you need to be aware of the laws at the location in which employees want to carry a gun or knife.
Every year, 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence. In 2014, 409 people were fatally injured in work-related attacks, according to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics. That's about 16% of the 4,821 workplace deaths that year.
While roadway incidents are the No. 1 cause of death for workers overall, violence is the third leading cause for healthcare workers, and employees in professional and business services like education, law and media, according to Injury Facts 2016®.
But make no mistake: Workplace violence can happen anywhere.
