Active Shooter In The Workplace: Respond With A Survivor’s Mindset And Limit Your Liability Exposure
|Date / Time:
If an unstable employee, ex-employee, or employee family member entered your workplace with a gun, would you know what to do? This is a serious question that every safety manager, HR professional, and employee should be able to answer with a resounding “Yes.”
Based on statistical data, when an assailant opens fire, an average of a dozen injuries and at least three deaths are likely to occur. Being prepared is the best tool for survival, for both you and your employees.
Consider the recent massacre that occurred at the San Bernardino, California’s Inland Regional Center (IRC), where armed assailants ambushed a workplace party, killing 14 and injuring 17 others. Witnesses identified one of the assailants as an employee for the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health (SBCDPH), which was putting on the event at the IRC facility that day.
Employers can no longer subscribe to the notion that “it will never happen here,” given the frequency and severity of workplace attacks. Fortunately, you can train employees to respond to an active assailant attack in ways that can minimize their risk of injury and death.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
