The Covid Effect on the Active Shooter Threat
March 31, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This last year has been largely defined by quarantines, isolation, financial distress, loss of life and relentless uncertainty. While many are seeking help to cope with the impact of these significant and prolonged stressors, others are not or are unable to get the help they need.
With the known connection between stress and violence, we must address the increased potential for those at-risk individuals to cause harm to self and others. Now, as the world re-opens and we return to life in-person, a renewed focus on mitigating risk against violent and potentially deadly outbursts is required.
Join Dr. Gary Margolis and Brandon Rhone as they discuss the potential impact of the pandemic on workplace violence and how companies can avert risk while also empowering staff with the life skills necessary to survive an active assailant in any environment.
You will learn:
- Why organizations are addressing active shooter response training as a life skill.
- How to identify the warning signs and behaviors people exhibit that may lead to violence.
- The positive impact this level of preparation can have on staff confidence and productivity as well as business continuity.
