Workplace Violence: Webinar Series

Active Shooter incidents are often unpredictable and can evolve quickly. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 80% of active shooter situations occur in the workplace, occurring once a week on average; and the Department of Justice reports that the average organization is 18 times more likely to experience a workplace violence incident than a fire.

This 2 part webinar series is designed to help you prepare and respond appropriately in an active shooter situation. Specifically, recognizing the presence of an active threat, the best course of action to take to recover after an incident, and developing a plan to protect your organization and your employees.
