CA Workplace Violence Prevention Plan

California SB 553 Violence Training

California SB 553

As of July 1, 2024, nearly all employers in California are mandated to enact a workplace violence prevention plan under the new law. SB 553 training applies to all employers operating in California with a workforce of 10 or more individuals present on-site. SB 553 requires employees to be trained in workplace violence prevention, including how to report and respond to workplace violence. While a corporate plan can suffice for companies with multiple locations, unique circumstances at each site might require individualized plans.

 Exceptions comprise hospitals, other healthcare facilities, and service categories and operations outlined in Section 3342 of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations. Employers in California could be subject to substantial fines for non-compliance with this legislation. According to Cal/OSHA’s penalty framework, fines for serious violations start at $18,000 per violation and could escalate to as much as $25,000 for non-compliance.

Workplace Violence Training - Optional Add-on (On-site & Webinar)

Our Workplace Violence Prevention course can be performed after the initial Work Place Violence Prevention Plan (WVPP) has been created and implemented within your company. Our workplace violence training course will help supervisors and employees learn to identify behavior and language that represents the potential to escalate into violence. This includes verbal threats, verbal abuse, yelling, pushing, kicking, hitting, stalking, and physical violence including lethal violence.

Our Violence in the Workplace Prevention Training was created to help employers and employees deal with the growing issue of workplace violence and create a dialogue about the shared responsibility of maintaining a safe workplace. Preventing workplace violence is a difficult challenge. Workplace Violence physically injures (and in some cases kills) employees, disrupts business, damages morale, creates expenses (medical, legal), and hurts your reputation.
