Workplace Violence: Assess, Defend, and Survive

Workplace Violence: Assess, Defend, and Survive 

This final webinar of the Workplace Violence series will be where the tire meets the road. We address how to determine the likelihood and severity of a threat, how to secure your workplace and active shooter response protocols. 1) Basic Threat Assessment: Threat assessment is part science and art as we introduce some principals of threat assessment including who should do the investigation, what information to look for, where to obtain the info and how to compile the findings into a comprehensive review. 2) Securing the Workplace: How to target harden the workplace and any identified targets through technical controls, changes in procedure, legal options and bringing in additional resources. 3) Active Shooter Protocols: This section will not only review the practical steps to improve odds of surviving a shooting including situational awareness, recognizing gun shots and a basic response (Run, Hide, Fight) but will also give guidance for management on how to develop protocols and conduct drills.
