Workplace Violence and Active Shooter Preparedness Webinar
May 24, 2018
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
You are invited to join us on May 24, 2018 at noon for a free webinar on this critically important and timely issue.
We hear all too often about horrific workplace violence and active shooter incidents. According to the FBI, over the past six years or so, there have been 220 active shooter incidents in the United States resulting in 1,486 casualties. And, when you consider that there are more than two million reports of workplace assaults every year, it is clear that workplace violence prevention and active shooter preparedness are essential safety/emergency response training programs for employers and their employees. We have an obligation to do all we can to make our workplaces as safe as possible. Today that includes “thinking about the unthinkable”.
Experts tell us that advanced preparation can help save lives. When confronted with workplace violence those who have been trained to follow set protocols are far more likely to remember what to do next and to act appropriately for their own safety and that of their coworkers. The untrained, however, are often overwhelmed by the shock of the experience leading to a failure to act, thereby endangering themselves and those around them. Knowing how differently these groups might react based solely on training underscores the importance of this training.
