Knowing how to respond to an active threat isn’t enough. In order to truly plan for (and recover from) such an unthinkable event, businesses must thoroughly prepare long before a threat even exists. Empower your employees to take charge of their own safety in an active shooting event with Active Shooter/Active Threat: How to Survive. Developed in conjunction with law enforcement experts, the program will help your employees identify a potential threat and act quickly. View program details.
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, an active shooter is “an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.”
Although there are not specific OSHA training requirements for active shooter response training, section 5 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act states that employers are required to furnish workplaces “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm.” In other words, employers have a duty to keep their employees safe from identifiable harm.
With the rise of workplace shootings in recent years, this kind of violence is beginning to be considered a “recognized hazard,” and employers have faced increased legal action following such incidents.
The key to stopping workplace violence is to identify and address potential problems before they escalate into a violent outburst. That's why you should train employees to recognize warning signs in coworkers and encourage them to report their findings to a supervisor, talk to a member of Human Resources (HR), or use an anonymous reporting avenue.
