Our company has a "No Weapons", "No Smoking On Company Property", "No Breathing On Me With Bad Breath", etc. etc. policy.

I need my job. I don't carry at work. It's an office environment and I doubt anyone there will go postal. You never know, of course. But I feel pretty good about my co-workers.

Depends on your laws and your companies policies. My co policy says no, but I do anyway. I would rather be unemployed than dead.
Funny You should say that about company policy.
The company I work for say's "No" firearms are allowed on company property, But when the President of the Company spots a snake in the pond we have out back, he call's on me.
Ever so often he also bring's his Grandson to work with him so I can take him out on the back side of the property and target practice.

Check your company policy, talk with your Boss and explain to him your concern's, you never know till you ask.

I agree that I'd rather be fired then hurt or dead.

But as a former Internal Auditor for a company that has a "no-weapons" policy, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you READ your company's policy on weapons in the workplace.

Here is the reason why I would hesitate to talk to management about your question. If you ask management (depending on the manager), you will be creating more questions in their mind about you. You are providing management now with "suspicion of disregard for company policy" which can later be turned to "proof" when/if you get caught with the firearm on premises. This isn't limited to if you have to pull it out. It can also be if you're "printing", someone goes in your desk and sees it, etc. etc.

Unless your direct boss is someone you can trust and who you know is also 2A, then I wouldn't speak with the boss regarding this. If you really want to speak with the boss, make sure you put out "Feelers" to see what the attitude towards 2A is. Maybe start out with your concerns about safety and whether or not you can have a knife (not a boxcutter, since they're not "weapons"...yeah right) or even a can of mace or pepper spray. Depending on how they answer that, then I would move the conversation towards a firearm, etc.

I don't carry on the premises but do carry to and from work. It's a technicality I know but one that can have severe consequences.

Not sure if it's relevant to the convo, but Texas has passed a law that protects you if u carry in ur car to and from work. A lot of companies state that u cannot have a gun on the property, simply said, you cannot be punished for having a gun in ur car on company property. Even if the company has a policy against it.

I work as HR in CA, so unless you have a ccw and your company allows it. Then probably not. More than likely with CA if you end up pulling your firearm out you'll be considered brandishing a firearm, possibly concealing a deadly weapon and be fired from your job. To be safe I'd say not to carry it and find other means. It sucks but bring it up to your company they could make an exception.

It is unlawful to carry a loaded rifle, shotgun, or handgun in any public place or on any public street in an incorporated area or an area where firing a firearm is prohibited.
Exceptions include:

Persons shooting on target ranges, or while hunting on the premises of a shooting club.
A person who reasonably believes that he or his property is in immediate danger and the weapon must be carried for "preservation."
A person "engaged in the act of making or attempting lawful arrest."
A person carrying a firearm while at home or at his place of business, including temporary residences and campsites.

Yes that is true DEPENDING on your state laws. Once I get my ccw you I.will carry at work but I work on retail and its legal to conceal carry where I work.

You're one of the lucky ones. Many can't cc at work due to the company's policy.
