Cases of workplace violence involving armed perpetrators are both rare and catastrophic. Not all subjects have used guns in these attacks; edged weapons and even vehicles are concerns as well. Recent events have heightened the awareness of the need for employees to follow the national DHS protocol: Run - Hide - Fight. Since all employees are in charge of their own sense of security, they need to know what to do, what not to do, follow their company or agency policies, and know how to protect themselves and others during these life-changing events.
In this fast-paced and tool-based webinar session he covers these issues:
- Defining potential workplace events and possible perpetrators
- A brief history of recent Active Shooter events and lessons learned
- Recognizing pre-attack behavioral warning signs
- When to use “high-risk customer service skills”
- Using Run - Hide - Fight videos as staff training tools
- Understanding the police response to active shooters
- How to practice and drill with Run-Hide-Fight safely and effectively
Why Should Attend
Steve uses empowerment over fear to make the participants feel comfortable about uncomfortable subjects like this one (e.g. no blood and guts videos or frightening stories).
