Addressing Today’s Safety and Security Threats: How to Keep your Business and your Community Safe

Event Date: 
Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

According to the FBI’s most recent data, there were almost 8 million property crime offenses in the United States in 2015.  And, according to Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) estimates, roughly 2 million employees per year are affected by some form of workplace violence.

In light of these worrying statistics, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center will host a webinar, Addressing Today’s Safety and Security Threats. The session is intended to help businesses better understand what threats they face, and what steps they can take now to mitigate potential problems. 

The webinar will provide practical advice for businesses to understand their top security threats, identify strategies owners and employees can take before a crime occurs, reduce business vulnerability, and work with employees to design effective plans for responding  when an incident occurs. 

The webinar was offered in conjunction with a set of Safety and Security Quick Guides that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation developed in partnership with Johnson Controls.  A longtime leader in building technologies and solutions, Johnson Controls has further strengthened its safety and security capabilities through a merger with Tyco.  The expertise of the legacy Tyco businesses in creating safe, secure environments is an integral part of the Johnson Controls partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
