Workplace Violence Prevention

SB 553 Compliance

The State of California recently enacted a Workplace Violence Prevention Law (SB 553) which creates onerous requirements for nearly every California employer. By July 1, employers must establish, implement and maintain an effective written Workplace Violence Prevention Plan to be enforced by Cal OSHA. Additionally, employers must train their workforce about the company’s prevention strategies. 

During CGAEF’s webinar, CalOSHA experts Rachel Conn and Andrea Chavez of Conn Maciel Carey LLP provide an in-depth overview of the requirements of the law and practical implementation advice including: 

  • Workplace violence definitions and types
  • Elements of a written workplace violence prevention plan
  • Employee training obligations
  • Recordkeeping requirements including details on maintaining a violent incidents log
