Developing a Comprehensive Workplace Violence Prevention System & Active Shooter Response

While many companies, health care, manufacturers, field service organizations, public sector entities, schools, houses of worship are trying to understand how to prevent and manage Active Shooter situations, they often lack themselves, the basic foundation of a well-developed internal Workplace Violence Prevention Program.  While there are about 750 homicides a year in the workplace, there are 2,000,000 assaults each year.  Such data suggests that employers must develop prevention programs to address these higher frequency, but lower lethal, incidents. This Program will discuss how to develop the Policies, Reporting Systems, Behavioral Threat Management Team functions and Program Structures which are the foundation to implement and effective Company Violence Prevention System.  It will conclude by defining protective strategies to employ during Active Shooter events.
