(Press release)

The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce will hold the second part of its workplace safety seminar series, Preventing Workplace Violence, on Fri. Oct. 5 from 8 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at the MCM Elegante, 801 Ave. Q.

Workplace violence is an important safety and health issue in today's workplace. Violence in the workplace, once confined to specific industries, now affects every type of business.

The seminar led by Denise Macik, a Human Resources Advisor and Client Advocate for G&A Partners, will help attendees understand what constitutes as workplace violence, define management and employee’s roles, and discuss workplace violence prevention plans.

Macik has worked as a Human Resources Manager in the Central Texas area for over 25 years in various industries, including the manufacturing, warehousing, sales, and biotech industries. She attended Sinclair College and the University of Dayton, both in Dayton, Ohio, and received her PHR certification in 2013 as well as her SHRM–CP certification in 2014.

The seminar is $50 and Chamber members receive a discounted price of $35. Breakfast and check-in will be from 8-8:30 a.m. Reserve your seat online at [LubbockChamber.com]LubbockChamber.com, call the Lubbock Chamber office at (806) 761-7000, or email allison.cottrell@lubbockbiz.org.
