With the ongoing spate of workplace violence and shootings, employers must maintain a plan of action to respond to an active shooter situation in the workplace.  This seminar will cover the importance of looking for warning signs before an event unfolds, structuring your contingency plan if an attack happens, the importance of reaction time to minimizing loss of life and injuries, effective methods to protect staff, and how to work with first responders.

Our speaker, Anna M. Winningham, will discuss the following topics:

  • The essential elements of an effective response plan and why experts are recommending new methods for dealing with active shooter circumstances
  • How to train employees to implement the plan while under stress during an active shooter event, including through live training events
  • The specific actions that employees should take during an incident to minimize casualties
  • How to communicate and interact with law enforcement and other first responders to minimize confusion and improve outcomes
