Rethinking True Organizational Safety and Security

Monday 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM

Session Description

It doesn’t take statistics any longer for people to understand that the possibility of violence in the workplace is real. The problem? Commonly accepted solutions, delivered by “assumed experts”, may actually be creating for more danger than we start with.

True organizational and family safety and security requires a “Rethinking” of what works and how we really achieve it.

This foundation-building course is consistently called “The best training – in any topic” by employees nationwide. It is a MUST attend if you are interested in truly keeping your employees, their families, and customers safe.
