A critical component of violence prevention and intervention programs is a detailed response plan with which all employees are familiar. In this webinar, the essential components of an emergency action plan or protocol for responding to threatened, attempted, or actual violence, including “active shooter” situations, will be discussed. Key preparatory activities for ensuring successful emergency responses will be reviewed, such as training personnel, developing an integrated response structure, liaising with emergency response agencies, developing and maintaining emergency communications systems, and staging mock emergencies to practice responses to anticipated scenarios of workplace violence. Critical components of post-emergency action also will be examined, such as participating in investigations by police and other authorities, providing medical assistance to injured persons and notifying their relatives, and discharging legally-required duties to notify regulatory bodies such as the Occupational Health and Safety Administration.
