During the past 20 years, statistics have shown a significant increase in workplace violence and active shooter incidents. In today’s society, it is more important than ever that businesses, companies, and organizations make security a priority. Numerous studies indicate that a workforce is more effective and efficient when the workplace is safe and secure. These studies also indicate that a business, organization or company is better protected from risk and liability when it is proactive in developing and instituting policies, procedures, and training designed to increase safety and survivability for the workforce, customers and visitors.
