Make Active Shooter Prevention and Preparedness Training a Priority

Companies report active shootings as a top security threat, but few have a plan in place to protect employees from danger. Workplace violence is starting to show up as one of the top human resources challenges.

More and more companies are putting off basic active shooter training despite the alarming numbers of people it ultimately affects.  

Concerns about safety and security are a natural response to the reports of shootings and other forms of violence taking place in the workplace and around the world. Employers can prepare by having a well-communicated disaster preparedness plan in place. Such plans often include escape-to-safety routes, temporary shelter locations, notification procedures, and communication command centers.

Alarming statistics show that companies are not prepared for this type of violence in the workplace. Additionally, 54% of those surveyed said they had not conducted active shooter education and only 15% increased physical security spending in the past two years. A little more than one-third of respondents said they plan to increase physical security spending in the future, according to a survey by Everbridge, Inc.
