Plans, Policies & Procedures to Reduce the Risks of Active Shooters in Your Healthcare Facility

In 2017, more than 152 mass shootings occurred in the United States. 70% of active shooter incidents have occurred in a business facility like yours. According to FBI’s and NYPD’s analyses, an active shooting incident is usually over in less than eight minutes—which means you and your employees must be prepared to respond before the police can arrive on the scene. An active shooter incident can unfold at lightning speed and the aftermath is usually horrific and deadly.

Though healthcare accounts for 18% of the workforce, nearly half of all workplace violence happens to people in healthcare occupations. That’s an alarming number. Workplace violence is becoming increasingly commonplace in healthcare facilities, including violence against physicians, nurses, emergency responders, social workers and other healthcare practitioners.

Protecting your workplace from active shooters and other workplace violence is not just a legal and moral obligation, but also plain good business sense. A single incident of violence can cost millions of dollars and even put you out of business. Do you really want to have to explaining to your boss, board of directors and/or victim families that you didn’t take steps because the odds seemed small?

Join safety expert Joe Rosner in this informative session to get insights on the who, what, where and why of workplace violence and active shooters. Joe will discuss plans, policies and procedures to greatly reduce the chances of violent incidents at your facility and show you how you can train your staff to respond correctly. You’ll get simple, effective tactics and techniques for preventing and surviving active shooting incidents, including practical strategies to stop a potential shooting event before it occurs and leaves a deadly aftermath.
