Planning and Response to an Active Shooter in the Workplace

Categories: TAHRA Program Meeting
Presented by Jim McBride

Did you know that Workplace Violence is the second leading cause of death for males in the workplace and the leading cause of death for females in the workplace? The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports over 400 homicides at the workplace each year. CDC says workplace violence has reached “epidemic proportions”.

An active shooter is defined as an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and other populated areas. Active shooter situations involve firearms and are unpredictable and evolve quickly. Management and employees should be educated in prevention, as well as, preparation and response to potential violent behavior.

We all have plans for fire and tornados but what about this topic?

At this program, attendees will learn:

  • What is a Secure Workplace?
  • Who Commits Workplace Violence?
  • What is Managements Roll?
  • What Are Your Plans?
