ATLANTA, March 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Security Associates clients are invited to the Marriott Hotel in San Ramon, California on March 21st for an expert discussion on how to prevent and respond to workplace violence and ensure a safe and healthy environment for employees. The event is organized by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Employment & Labor Law Committee and sponsored by workplace law firm, Jackson Lewis LLP. There is a nominal fee of $50 for non-ACC members. An encore presentation is scheduled on March 22nd at the San Francisco offices of Jackson Lewis.

Tyler Brown, a Partner with Jackson Lewis, will discuss employers' legal obligations and best practices for managing employees. John M. Greene, M.D., a Board Certified Forensic Psychiatrist and an Adjunct Clinical Faculty Member at Stanford University, will discuss common mental illnesses that arise in the workplace and their connection to violence risk. Michael Corcoran, Ph.D. founder of The Workthreat Group and former Secret Service agent, will discuss how to prevent harassment, bullying and threats before they become a liability.

During his tenure with the Secret Service, Dr. Corcoran assessed threats against U.S. Presidents, Vice Presidents and numerous foreign dignitaries. Today, he is one of the world's leading authorities in identifying and handling potentially violent subjects and routinely conducts workplace violence training and threat assessments in association with the Consulting and Investigations division of security service firm U.S. Security Associates.

The demand for workplace violence training is on the rise as national standards, federal regulations and professional guidelines continue to evolve with respect to workplace violence prevention. U.S. Security Associates helps clients develop comprehensive, regulatory agency compliant workplace violence prevention programs that meet OSHA Directives and the recently approved ASIS/SHRM ANSI Standard, including client-customized training curricula, procedural material and documentation formats. U.S. Security Associates also provides 24/7 support on developing issues and threats, with direct intervention and/or psychological consult as needed. Company consultants are called upon hundreds of times every year to assess risks of potential violence.
