Preventing and Responding to Workplace Violence

August 14, 2019

In the latest edition of Disaster Recovery Journal James Green, Senior Consulting Manager at SAI Global, talks about the rise of workplace violence incidents in the US and why there is no excuse to not have a solid operating Workplace Violence Plan in place.

"For organizations, an active shooter incident represents one of the worst-case scenarios of workplace violence. According to an FBI study, active shooter incidents have risen every year since 2000 with an average increase of 11.4 incidents a year. Based on statistics, you are 18 times more likely to encounter workplace violence and an active shooter situation than a fire. As these tragedies continue to occur more regularly and with increased severity, the concern of a workplace violent act or the likelihood of an active shooter must be seriously considered."
