Active Shooter Preparedness Training: Strategies to Anticipate and Respond to Active Shooter Events - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to develop strategies for planning for and responding to active shooter incidents.

No one wants to think about the possibility of workplace violence. However, it’s consistently among the leading causes of workplace fatalities, and over 40,000 nonfatal cases resulting in days away from work occurred in 2018 (the most recent year for which data are available).

Organizations can no longer view workplace violence as an outlier, unpredictable situation that doesn’t require preparation; the Occupational Safety and Health Administration can and does cite employers that fail to take steps to protect their employees from known workplace violence risks under the General Duty Clause, and a growing number of states are implementing their own workplace violence prevention requirements.

Therefore, it’s important for safety professionals to have an accurate understanding of their risk for workplace violence to protect employees, contractors, customers, facility visitors, and others who may be at risk, and develop and implement safeguards to address potential active shooter situations through advance preparation and training.

Use this on-demand webinar when workplace security expert Hector Alvarez, MSPsy, CTM will outline active shooter preparedness strategies for anticipating and responding to the types of unthinkable events that can cripple lives and workplaces.

After attending this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Identify pre-attack warning signs and indicators of targeted violence before an incident occurs
  • Implement effective strategies for improving facility/organization security
  • Develop an effective plan for crisis response that incorporates best practices for success
  • Communicate with management to gain support and backing for an effective workplace violence prevention program
  • Identify key strategies for developing enhanced situational awareness and a survival mindset
  • Assess some approaches for training employees to assure that they know how to safety respond to an “active shooter” event

And, as a bonus for attending, you’ll receive BLR’s Toolbox Talk: Workplace Violence—What to do in an active shooter situation.
