This webinar will address the discussion and creation of a necessary mindset, understanding the OSHA principles and expectations, knowledge of operations and security requirements that need to be considered as the workforce "Returns to Work" during the Covid-19 Infectious Disease Threat and the "New Normal".

It is anticipated that such risk mitigation requirements will create stress on workplace operations and increase security management challenges, necessitating the appropriate mindset and understanding in the disposition and de-escalation of situations. Recognizing incidents of a potential threat of violence should be the primary objective.

When such behavior is identified, at risk employees may be subjected to temporary segregation and ultimate removal from the premises in support of the OSHA 3990 Document. Such challenges will assuredly task Operations and workplace security resources, aggravate tensions within the workforce and agitate existing negative behavior between coworkers.  Management has a duty of care to anticipate requirements, manage risks, clarify expectations, assess and evaluate all situations and implement appropriate policies and procedures.

Safety and security factors must be a consideration that minimally interfere with Operations. Risk mitigations approaches must be coordinated as an operational-security necessity before and during the existence of the workplace security threat. Operations and senior managers much also address and collaborate factors adversely contributing to Post Election hostility and negative behaviors within the workplace and between coworkers.

Why you should Attend

Covid-19 Return to Work will not be without the need for employers to take appropriate risk mitigation protection measures in protecting the workforce and business operations from the unintentional consequences of the CDC Risk Mitigation Strategies adversely affecting safety, security and operations.

Nevertheless, management has a legal and moral duty and responsibility to augment existing safety and security plans or implement new policies, plans and procedures to protect the workforce and the workplace against the potential threat of workplace violence emanating from a risk mitigation protective measure.

While employers are required to implement CDC Covid-19 Risk Mitigation Strategies, the OSHA Duty to Warn Clause regulation charges employers with providing for a safe and secure workplace.

The CDC Risk Mitigations Strategy did not distinguish between small, mid-size or large or employers. In anticipation for the potential of violence this training program helps employers understand the risks and how to roll out workplace security measures that minimize the threat of workplace violence through thoughtful but appropriate prevention policies and plans.
