LOUISVILLE, KY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/13 -- AlliedBarton
Security Services, the industry's premier provider of highly trained
security personnel, and HR Plus, a leading provider of comprehensive
solutions for employment and background screening, will host a free
workplace violence prevention seminar on Wednesday, July 24, at 8:00
a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The seminar will take place at the Kentucky Derby
Museum, 704 Central Ave., Louisville, KY, in the Carl F. Pollard
Gallery. Guests will receive complimentary breakfast and lunch.
"While we cannot predict if a workplace violence event will occur, we
must have a plan for that possibility," said speaker Brent O'Bryan,
SPHR, Vice President of Learning & Development, AlliedBarton. "It is
an employer's responsibility to educate their employees on workplace
violence prevention procedures. The only way to stop an incident
before it happens is to be proactive and ensure all employees are
aware of your plan, participate in training and drills, and know your
organization's course of action for when an incident occurs."
"Workplace violence prevention involves support from company
leadership and a rigorous program which includes policies and
procedures," said Stefan Brown, Global Security Director, GE Home &
Business Solutions. "Most importantly, you must have an engaged base
of employees that are comfortable reporting suspicious behavior,
persons or activities, which is proven to help maintain a safe and
secure work environment."
Lieutenant Brent Routzahn, SWAT/Louisville Metro Police Department,
will also be in attendance and will present on civilian active
shooter response. Presentations will also be given on practical
preparedness and recovery after a workplace violence event and a
corporate perspective on workplace violence preparation and
Seminar attendees will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win
a Kindle and copies of "Potential: Workplace Violence Prevention and
Your Organizational Success" by Bill Whitmore, President and CEO,
AlliedBarton. Guests can also take part in a free 30 minute guided
walking tour of the historic Churchill Downs after the event.
Potential, www.potentialthebook.com, shows how a range of
stakeholders -- from CEOs and other senior leaders to building
management, human resources, contract security and law enforcement --
can work together to lower an organization's workplace violence risk
and enhance its overall morale and performance.
Media interested in attending this event are encouraged to RSVP to
the press contact in this release.
