Active Shooters and Armed Attackers in the Workplace

(Read reviews)

Price: $199


Proactively Preventing and Handling Workplace Violence Incidents

Cases of workplace violence mass attacks involving armed perpetrators are both rare and catastrophic. Yet for managers, “it can’t happen here” is not an effective preparation strategy.

Recent events have heightened the awareness of the need for employees to follow the national Department of Homeland Security (DHS) protocol: Run-Hide-Fight.

Since all employees are in charge of their own sense of security, they need to know what to do, what not to do, and how to protect themselves and others during these life-changing events.

This empowering webinar offers practical, realistic tools to make your facility a better, safer place to work. Leading security expert Dr. Steve Albrecht uses a mix of real-life events, knowledge of workplace behavior, and security measures to give you practical tactics and insights to prepare for and respond to an active attacker emergency.


We have 1 webinar(s) available starting between 9/27/2018 - 9/27/2018
