Active Shooter and Workplace Violence: Preparation and Readiness
23 March |1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT199
This webinar includes two topics that are important for business leaders and employers to educate themselves on an unfortunate, yet very real trend in the country. Join us as we review Workplace Violence, specifically causes and signs to look for, pre-attack indicators, ways that you can help to de-escalate situations and keep your workplace safe, and how to prepare and handle difficult conversations. Next, we will review history cases of active shooter incidents and understand the underlying details from investigators and law enforcement officials. Included is an examination of motivators and tactics used by active shooters. We will then review suggested reactions if you find yourself in an active shooter situation (Run, Hide, or Fight), including interacting effectively with law enforcement.
