California Senate Bill No. 553 (“SB 553”), requires covered California employers to take steps to prevent and respond to workplace violence. Effective July 1, 2024 Section 6401.9, requires covered employers to adopt a comprehensive workplace violence prevention plan. The law includes a number of specific requirements pertaining to the development, implementation, execution and maintenance of the plan.  

Our team of experts can help you to ensure that your organization has a program and plan in place to meet these new requirements and to understand the implications of this new legislation on your business beyond the borders of California.

For many years, Control Risks has advanced the concept of proactive workplace violence (WPV) prevention programs designed to identify and mitigate associated risks before they become a crisis. As part of that overall effort, Control Risks has assisted numerous Fortune 500 companies in the development of their WPV prevention programs. We have vast experience in designing strategies to help organizations identify and address threats posed by aggrieved employees before they manifest into actual workplace violence incidents, ensuring our clients meet their duty of care in this area. 

Control Risks has a dedicated threat management team with deep expertise in behavioral analysis, threat assessment, radicalization, and violence prevention and response programs.
