Workplace Violence and Shootings in the Spotlight

Seyfarth Synopsis: With the seemingly random workplace violence that continues unabated, many employers are again asking how best to protect their employees.

We had blogged previously about “Workplace Violence Prevention: DHS Promotes “Active Shooter Preparedness” Programs – Is Your Company Ready?” In addition, we blogged about an “Airport Active Shooter Incident — What Can Happen in Just 15 Seconds, and What Business Needs to Know.” These blogs illustrate that there are programs that may be developed, with some assistance from models and safety professionals. Active planning ahead of any such instance may lessen the damages and increase safety and early responses.
