The Boulder Colorado event of March 22, 2021 was another reminder how dangerous a workplace can become.
Hopefully, you have not personally experienced an event like this one and incurred the memories which can linger for some time.
Prevention and preparation are always the best Rx for RisksNThreats which can affect the workplace.

Presenter: Cathi L. Marx, ALCM, COSS, COEA, CHPP – VP Risk & Safety Services It’s important for employees to understand how to avoid situations where violence may occur and know what to do in the event of an active shooter or violent situation. In light of recent shootings in both the workplace and public venues, employers are taking steps to prepare for similar scenarios. There is no cookie cutter approach to such a fluid and unpredictable event, but what employers and employees can do is make facilities more difficult to penetrate, entry protocols more stringent, and implement staff training to improve awareness. This requires astute awareness of surroundings and responding efficiently and effectively when something doesn’t seem right. This presentation will cover the four types of workplace violence as identified by OSHA and the FBI, including a review of past workplace and public events (where active shooter incidents have occurred) with an emphasis on situational awareness and how employees can train themselves to be more aware of their surroundings. The concept of run-hide-fight as outlined by the department of Homeland Security will be reviewed (as a best practice to ensure safety), including a discussion about the most important steps employers and employees can take to reduce the possibility of a work-place violence event. We will cover the tenets of situational awareness and how employees can train themselves to be more mindful and present in their daily lives so that may increase their chances of surviving an active shooter event.
