Safety and security in the workplace was the focus of a NOSHA Conference in Grand Forks today. Speakers talked about everything from identity theft to self defense to drug and alcohol awareness. More than 200 people took part.

NOSHA officials say violence is often overlooked in the workplace.

Carol Gierszewski, the president of NOSHA, says, “We don't want to believe that it would ever happen here. We all think we're North Dakota nice, and we had some very good tips today from some very good speakers of things to look out for.

The keynote speaker was Stefan Salmonson. He's a licensed peace officer, private detective, protective agent, and certified personal protection specialist.
