Quick Access will be hosting a Workplace Violence workshop on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.  The two-hour session will be conducted by nationally-known safety and security consultant Dennis Lewis, a 30-year veteran of Springfield area law enforcement.


The workshop, held at Sleep Inn at 233 E. Camino Alto Drive, will be offered at 9:00 a.m.and again at 1:30 p.m.  Registration for the seminar is $30, however Springfield Area Chamber members will recieve a 50% discount ($15) on the registration site provided below.


Because acts of workplace violence are frequently a "targeted event," the perpetrator often exhibits warning signs predicting what they are thinking and possibly planning.  The workshop will assist local business owners, managers, human resource leaders, and safety / emergency preparedness managers in auditing what their organizations have in place, as well as additional necessary steps to ensure safety and security.  Resources will be made available to attendees as part of the training.


Registration for a limited number of workshop seats is open now.  For more information or to register for the 9 a.m. session, visit https://bit.ly/2HbBdX4.  Details for the 1:30 p.m. session may be found at https://bit.ly/2VGBchX.  Chamber members recieve a 50% discount.
