Podcast: Prevention Planning for Workplace Violence

May 16, 2024
Matt Doherty, managing director of workplace management with Sikich, discusses what California bill 533 could mean for all employers in terms of providing a detailed workplace violence prevention plan for their companies.

California Senate Bill No. 553 was signed last September and mandates that nearly all California employers need to adopt a workplace violence prevention plan by July 1, 2024.

In this “Talking EHS” podcast, part of the “Great Question” podcast series, we talk to Matt Doherty, managing director of workplace management with consulting firm, about what California bill 533 could mean for all employers in terms of providing a detailed workplace violence prevention plan.

Many companies might think they already have such a plan in place, but as Doherty explains, full 553 compliance involves a written plan, active employee involvement, hazard identification and correction. He’ll also share his experiences consulting with companies on workplace violence, drawing upon his extensive background with includes serving as a Secret Service Special Agent in Charge of the National Threat Assessment Center.
