Situational Awareness - Active Shooter: Becoming Jason Bourne
Join us for the Active Shooter / Situational Awareness Training Session                            
This presentation will cover the four types of workplace violence as identified by OSHA and the FBI, including a review of past workplace and public events (where active shooter incidents have occurred) with an emphasis on situational awareness and how employees can train themselves to be more aware of their surroundings.  The concept of run-hide-fight as outlined by the department of Homeland Security will be reviewed (as a best practice to ensure safety), including a discussion about the most important steps employers and employees can take to reduce the possibility of a work-place violence event.  We will cover the tenets of situational awareness and how employees can train themselves to be more mindful and present in their daily lives so that may increase their chances of surviving an active shooter event.
The presentation is approximately 1.25 hours long and is presented by Cathi L. Marx, ALCM, COSS, COEA, CHPP
