On any day you could face the unexpected. Preparing for the unexpected can be key to surviving.

Workplaces are prone to many different risks. Emergencies are unexpected, often chaotic events when rational thinking often does not prevail. In recent years, the US has faced a proliferation of workplace-intruder incidents due to several factors, including domestic problems spilling into work, worker revenge, mental instability, and terrorism.

Just as workplaces prepare for fires with emergency drills, employees also can ready themselves for other emergencies such as workplace intruders. When emotions risk overshadowing a careful response, employees can best prevent, mitigate, or protect themselves from violent incidents through preparation.

This course explores the need for workplace intruder preparation, ways to prevent and deescalate possible violent situations, and how employees can prepare to invoke the Run, Hide, Fight model advocated by US governmental agencies such as DHS, FEMA, and the FBI. It also addresses what individuals should do in the aftermath of such an incident.
