On Friday, January 16, 2015, Philadelphia Insurance Companies  kicked off its 2015 ALICE Training Seminar Series in Boston at Gillette Stadium. Philadelphia Insurance Companies sponsors the three hour training sessions with ALICE Founder and President, Greg Crane, and then invites the organizations it insures to attend the seminar. Friday’s event was a success with over 250 business professionals in attendance.

This year Philadelphia Insurance Companies will host these ALICE Training Seminars across the country in over eight states, in cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, and Portland.

Violence in the workplace is the second leading cause of on-the-job fatalities in the U.S. and costs the American workforce $36 billion annually. We appreciate Philadelphia Insurance Companies’ commitment to workplace safety, by taking the time to sponsor ALICE Training for its insured, and helping them learn more about ALICE’s research-based, proactive approach to surviving violent intruder incidents.
