CIC Security Management: Workplace Violence
On a normal day, we clock in, we work hard, and we clock out. It is business as usual; nothing eventful happens. Yet, workplace violence is a real threat. Recent events are a sad reminder of the importance of knowing what to do in an Active Shooter or Workplace Violence situation. Homicides are now the leading cause of non-accidental workplace deaths. Whether the assailant is a spouse, a current or former employee, a customer, or random stranger, workplace safety cannot be assumed. One insult, one threat, one punch, one gunshot — any of these situations will have devastating effects on your hardworking staff.
