Sgt. Ed Myrick of the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office will be the guest speaker on “Preserving Human Capital: The Tactical Guide to Workplace Violence and Minimizing Loss of Life,” presented by the Savannah Area Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management.
The presentation will be held Jan. 20 at 7:30 a.m. at the First City Club, 32 Bull St. in Savannah.
Myrick will discuss an updated approach to the difficult arena of responding to workplace violence in the new economic culture. Incidents are now a matter of “when” and no longer just an “if.” Address these questions regarding your business or organization:
•Do you have a policy and training program in place to assist staff in identifying potential dangers and what does it include
•Do you have a policy and training program in place to assist staff in reacting to an incident if it occurs and minimizing chaos
•What should you expect from law enforcement, EMS and fire when they respond to location
•What essential information does law enforcement, EMS and fire need from you when they respond to be the most efficient
•How do you let those “on the outside” know which areas are safe, which areas are in crisis, and which areas have injured people without using normal means of communication.
TSAC-SHRM encourages small business owners, non profits, safety managers, department heads and CEOs to attend.
The presentation is being done in collaboration with the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office and the Effingham County Board of Commissioners human resources office.
