A key area of concern are active shooter events, an incident where an individual(s) is actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area, typically through the use of firearms. Although workplace homicides decreased from 518 in 2010 and 542 in 2009, such events are still a cause for concern and need to be proactively addressed. This topic will provide participants with a proven strategy for developing and implementing an effective and comprehensive workplace violence program with a focus on active shooter events. Mr. Foulke will demonstrate that making the right preparations ahead of time will eliminate active shooter incidents and/or significantly reduce their impact.
