Active shooters and Workplace Violence (WPV) evolve rapidly and are chaotic, fast-paced incidents. Years 2013-2015 saw the most number of deaths due to Active shooters. The shooting in December 2015 in San Bernardino, California claimed 14 lives and left 22 people seriously injured.
Imagine the horror of encountering such scenarios at your own workplace. From 2000 to 2015, more than thousand casualties occurred due to active shooter incidents in workplaces.
Having an emergency response system ready for WPV and Active Shooters and training people at your workplace is the ONLY way you can effectively respond and keep your employees safe.
Key Features of the Conference
Workplace violence and active shooters are 18 times more likely to strike at any workplace than a fire at work. Research has proven that many workplaces who had received training beforehand to avert such situations were able to minimize the loss of lives due to emergency preparedness.
It’s every employer’s duty of care to protect and safeguard their employees by training them so that they can respond with tact. 70% of Active Shooters occur in businesses versus campuses. If your employees are not trained on how to react responsibly in such situations, they might not know how to escape alive. Training them before such an incident actually occurs will help to bolster prevention protocols at your workplace.
Expert Bo Mitchell will help you prepare your workplace to deal with such incidents. You’ll get insights on prevention protocols, response procedures, methods for containing WPV and Active Shooters.
The Session will cover Key Topics such as:
What are the facts and myths of WPV?
What are the laws, regulations, and standards that control policy, procedures and training regarding WPV?
What is the research on Active Shooters?
What’s the best way to train for WPV and Active Shooters?
How to protect your management from such incidents?
