This session aims to equip organizations with crucial responses for the first few seconds of a mass shooting incident.
According to recent statistics, Active Shooter incidents and workplace shooting incidents, which often leave one or more people dead, have quadrupled in the last three and a half years. A mass shooting in the workplace is an intense and combative situation. It might only last for a few minutes, and can be over before the police can even respond. In such a situation, organizations must have in place response procedures and processes to minimize the risk to their employees. Organizational response within the first few seconds of an incident can dictate the consequences.
A mass shooting, active shooting or mass murder similar to the one that occurred in Nice, France, can often only last for a few minutes, making it difficult for the police to respond in time. Being prepared for such incidents is key to ensuring the safety of employees. Organizations must understand how the local police department would respond in their workplace and even whether to arm employees. Having effective policies and procedures in place is essential to prevent loss of life.
In this live webinar, expert speaker Bo Mitchell will share his expertise on how organizations can prevent mass shootings in the workplace. He will discuss how an organization and its employees should respond in the first few seconds and minutes of an incident, and how an organization should prepare its people. He will discuss what RUN/HIDE/FIGHT means to each organization and its employees regarding a mass shooting in the workplace. As per Bo, “this training is a must have given the way acts of violence are becoming common in the workplace.”
