Active Shooter & Workplace Violence
September 15, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm EDT
Due to the emergency COVID-19 pandemic response, this session has been rescheduled and will be held Tuesday, September 15, 2020 beginning at 9:00 am at NEPPA’s Training Center (200 New Estate Road, Littleton, MA).
Who Should Attend
This seminar is designed for anyone involved in or impacted by safety preparedness policies and procedures, including:
- General Managers
- Occupational Safety & Health Professionals
- Crew Leaders
- General Foremen
- Office Managers
- Customer Service Representatives
- Metering & Field Personnel
Very few organizations have effective and practical policy and procedure in place for an incident of violence or active shooter incident. For many, policies and procedures look great on paper, however, when you examine what’s expected of employees it’s simply not possible to carry out under the circumstances of an incident.
Policy and procedure is an area where limitation of vulnerability to organizational liability is critical.
This seminar brings a very high-level understanding to policy and procedure and its real effectiveness in what it’s designed to accomplish.
The facilitated Roundtable will be an open discussion about what other policies and procedures are being used, what resources are available, and what are best practices to follow.
The agenda is still being finalized and is therefore subject to change.
