Environmental Health & Safety Breakfast - Civilian Response to Active Attacks: Avoid, Deny, Defend
Workplace violence is defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the worksite. Workplace violence is one of the major causes of death in the corporate world, second only to transportation.
Addressing this growing problem locally for our businesses, Sergeant John Rogers from the City of Monroe Police Department and Mike Smith, In-Service Law Enforcement Training Coordinator from South Piedmont Community College, are delivering an important program on workplace violence and the civilian response.
At this breakfast, among the important points you will learn are:
- How to identify the importance of learning from past active shooter attacks to assist in preparing for future events
- Landmark events and lessons learned by law enforcement
- How to define and identify the typical and atypical active shooter attacks
- Identify and explain the Avoid, Deny, and Defend/Run, Hide, and Fight civilian response protocols as they relate to an active shooter attack
