Workplace Violence and Active Shooter: Develop a Culture of Preparedness

When violence erupts in a workplace, the outcome and events of the scenario are unpredictable. Injury or death of building occupants, lawsuits, property damage, and diminished trust in the organization by staff and the community are just a few of the possible consequences. The possibility of an Active Shooter Incident is no longer a question of if, but rather when and where – yet the risk for violence is difficult to predict and almost impossible to eliminate. In most workplaces where risk factors can be identified, the risk of assault can be prevented or minimized if employers take appropriate precautions. Under the federal Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA), all employers have a general duty to provide a safe workplace for employees, free from recognized hazards that cause or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees. OSHA believes that a well-written and implemented workplace violence prevention program, combined with engineering controls, administrative controls and training can reduce the incidence of workplace violence in both the private sector and federal workplaces. According to an FBI survey, 45% of active shooter incidents take place in a commercial environment. In an active shooter scenario, preparation is the key to survival. Would you know what to do in the event of an active shooter selected your office to carry out their attack? Would your employees know what to do? Does your organization have an emergency preparedness plan?
