Anticipating Active Shooter Incidents in the Workplace

orrm-2-17-2020-active-shooterActive shooter incidents can happen just about anywhere—the workplace is certainly no exception.  According to the FBI, nearly 44% of active shooter incidents from 2000-2018 have occurred in the workplace and other areas of commerce. In many cases the workplace, including employees and employment activities, can be direct and significant contributing factors. Employers are well advised to anticipate possible active shooter incidents in the same way as other low frequency, high severity perils, such as a tornado or fire.
