Active Shooter Training in the Workplace

Hours: 4.00 | Estimated Cost: $79.00

Workplace violence is a growing concern in both the public and private sectors. One of the deadliest forms of workplace violence is an active shooter event. An active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area; in most cases active shooters use firearms, and there is no pattern or method to their selection of victims.

Active shooter events are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Typically, the immediate deployment of law enforcement is required to stop the shooting and mitigate harm to victims. Because active shooter events are often over before law enforcement arrives on the scene, individuals must be prepared both mentally and physically to deal with an active shooter situation.

This seminar is designed to help you recognize warning signs related to active shooting events and effectively respond if violence occurs. We’ll discuss case histories, the public safety response to an event, and actions you can take to prevent and prepare for a potential active shooter incident. The concepts taught during the training seminar can make a difference during an active shooter event.
