When violence erupts in a workplace, the outcome, impact and events of the scenario are unpredictable. Injury or death of building occupants, lawsuits, property damage, and diminished trust in the organization by staff and the community are just a few of the possible consequences.  

According to an FBI survey, 45% of active shooter incidents take place in a commercial environment. The unfortunate possibility of an Active Shooter Incident is no longer a question of if, but rather when and where – yet the risk for violence is difficult to predict and almost impossible to eliminate.

In most workplaces where risk factors can be identified, the risk of assault can be prevented or minimized if employers take appropriate precautions and are able to plan and implement multi-hazard safety training. Under the federal Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA), all employers have a general duty to provide a safe workplace for employees, free from recognized hazards that cause or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees. OSHA believes that a well-written and implemented workplace violence prevention program, combined with engineering controls, administrative controls and training can reduce the incidence of workplace violence in both the private sector and federal workplaces.

Does your organization have an emergency preparedness plan? Would your employees know what to do if an active shooter selected your office to carry out their attack?

Attendees of this webinar will learn:
  • Understand the multiple types of workplace violence and crisis that can impact your organization
  • Understand how to plan for multi-hazard crisis safety
  • Learn how to create an emergency response plan and prepare for an Active Shooter incident
  • How best to communicate and develop effective liaison with internal and external stakeholders, law enforcement agencies and other first responders
  • Come away with best practices for conducting Active Shooter response training for employees and recognizing signs of potential workplace violence
