Adapt to Changing Compliance Regulations: A Deep Dive into California's New Workplace Violence Training Requirement

In the ever-evolving landscape of regulatory compliance, staying ahead of the curve is not just an advantage – it's a necessity. California has recently implemented a groundbreaking regulation aimed at curbing workplace violence. Governor Gavin Newsom recently signed Senate Bill 553 (“SB 553”) into law, requiring covered California employers to take new steps to prevent and respond to workplace violence. Any organization that is covered by this requirement must be in compliance by July 1, 2024. 

This webinar explains the intricacies of California's new workplace violence training requirement and is designed to equip employers, HR professionals, and safety officers with the knowledge and tools needed to not only comply with these new regulations, but also foster a safer, more responsive work environment. Our panel of seasoned compliance specialists will provide valuable strategies to effectively manage and adapt to California’s new mandate, as well as future evolving mandates
