Program Length: 4 hours

After attending the first installment of our 2022 Workplace Violence Virtual Master Class series, you won't want to miss this follow-up event to learn expert strategies for address workplace violence and handling the aftermath, should a violent incident occur.

Workplace violence has become all too prevalent in today's workplaces, and no industry is spared. Preparing to prevent workplace violence will only get you so far; you must also be equipped with strategies for handling the aftermath of a violent incident. If handled incorrectly, it will have a negative impact on your company's bottom line.

In the aftermath of a violent incident, your business may end up losing a few days or even weeks of revenue if it has to close its doors to repair, restock, or clean. Not to mention, your organization’s insurance costs might skyrocket depending on the severity of the situation and how many people were injured or need to seek medical treatment or counseling afterward. Additionally, your organization could even be sued or issued a citation due to extreme negligence, which would instigate long-lasting fiscal and legal ramifications for your business. And let's not forget about the long-term repercussions these events will have on your workforce's mental health.

Having a workplace violence plan in place is only half the battle. You must also have a plan in place that addresses what to do after a violent incident has occurred, and fortunately, Hector Alvarez is back to help you put that plan in place!

This intensive 1-day training will teach you the ins and outs of addressing and handling workplace violence. Alvarez will help you:

  • Develop policies and procedures to actually manage an event,
  • Define Run, Hide, Fight more clearly and demonstrate common errors,
  • Go beyond Run, Hide, Fight and look at actual process in your facility,
  • Discover how to react if a serious event occurs in your workplace,
  • Encourage movement to escape threats—and the communications channels your organization may want to use if violence erupts,
  • Conduct open discussion for questions and thought sharing,
  • And so much more!


Our expert presenter Hector R. Alvarez will uncover deep insights from his vast experience in crisis management and share personal strategies to help your organization overcome violence at your company.

High-Impact Workplace Violence Simulations

Training employees on how to respond in the event of a violent attack is important, but what’s really critical for HR and safety managers to be able to do is identify specific vulnerabilities to workplace violence and close the gaps to minimize the risk of injury or death if an attack occurs. While “run, hide, fight” training is still touted as a foundation for active shooter preparedness, it’s essential for organizations to pay close and continuous attention to three key additional elements when conducting active shooter or other workplace violence drills: safety, communication, and control.

This session will teach you how to

  • Develop policies and procedures to actually manage an event.
  • Define “run, hide, fight” more clearly, and demonstrate common errors.
  • Go beyond “run, hide, fight,” and look at actual processes in your facility.
  • Discover how to react if a serious event occurs in your workplace.
  • Encourage movement to escape threats—and the communications channels your organization may want to use if violence erupts.
  • Conduct open discussion for questions and thought sharing.

Beyond the Active Shooter: Addressing Bullying, Sexual Harassment, and Domestic Violence in the Workplace

Employers have the opportunity to take a stand against violent behaviors and make the workplace a safe haven. The problem so far, however, is that employers have been talked into using compliance to solve a culture problem. For example, what we’re calling harassment prevention training is harassment corrective-action training. If it were preventive, it would include skills that prevent harassment, like standing up for your company core values.

Alvarez will share tools to:

  • Describe organizational risk factors for bullying and sexual harassment so that you can work to correct them.
  • Implement a healthy workplace policy that gets employee buy-in.
  • Implement a new kind of harassment prevention training.
  • Discern the difference between an investigation and a culture assessment.
  • Describe the role of the employer when personal issues and domestic violence spill into the workplace.

Crisis Management Leadership: How to Handle the Aftermath

Alverez will wrap up this event by exploring the many aspects of identifying and addressing myriad issues relating to crisis management. With a focus on the role, expectations, and actions that leaders must implement to direct an organization through the many uncontrollable issues that are consistent in many crises, this session will provide real-world examples of missed opportunities that heightened the issues related to the original crisis and, in some cases, intensified the initial incident. While every crisis scenario is unique, there are many opportunities to take advantage of lessons learned and proactive, focused planning, and this session will show you how to:

  • Develop an understanding of the many components of crisis management, including the internal and external impact.
  • Identify the “early warning signs” that are frequently recognizable in pending crisis management cases.
  • Share ideas on the process of creating an effective action plan that changes the course of the issue and provides a road map to solutions
  • Discuss the proactive steps that can assist with the many predicaments that can be mitigated with pre-crisis planning.


3:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
