Is your firm prepared for a violent intruder? IOFM research finds companies annually suffer at least one significant workplace violence event for every 600 workers; yet, Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows a shocking lack of security safeguards at America’s workplaces:

  • 58% do not have an intruder/burglar system
  • 78% do not have surveillance cameras
  • 70% do not have secured entry/locked doors
  • 84% do not register or check in visitors

The violent workplace intruder comes in different forms—each posing a unique challenge that requires specific protocols for response. Would your employees know what to do if a violent intruder came into the workplace? Have you taken the steps required for preventing incidents and mitigating the harm a violent intruder could cause?

This webinar recording will provide you with actionable advice to answer the difficult questions that every business faces today and examine what you should do to prepare and protect workers and others from a violent workplace intruder. You'll also hear what to teach them, procedures to help them survive such an incident, and preventive, mitigating and de-escalating measures your company should put in place to protect them.

In addition, you'll:

  • Discover how to alert and instruct staff and others during a violent intruder incident, including an active shooter.  What are the mechanisms by which you can announce and inform? What should you say?  What options do you have?
  • Learn how your local law enforcement agencies can and will support you in planning for and responding to the violent intruder. The power of the ongoing liaison.
  • Discuss the violent intruder incident as it should relate to your emergency and crisis management program and how Incident Command factors in. How and when do you make the judgment calls?
  • Learn the four necessary components of a proper workplace violence program and discuss the four types of workplace violence perpetrators, according to OSHA, and how they may relate to your organization.
  • Discover what employees, as well as supervisors and managers, should learn to make them essential parts of prevention and response.
  • Consider the potential steps that can be taken to mitigate and de-escalate a potentially violent situation. 
  • Learn how to safely and securely plan for the potentially problematic triggering or precipitating event (e.g. termination, lay-off, refusal of service, etc.). 
  • Consider added physical and procedural security measures that may be appropriate.
  • Discuss robbery prevention and response.
