Every organization should have a response team, made up of the company's safety and security stakeholders. This can include business leaders from HR, Safety, Security, Risk Management, Facilities, IT, and those that have responsibilities connected to the safety, security, and well-being of the employees, products and services, clients and customers, facilities, and reputation of the business. The possibility of workplace violence, committed by strangers, customers, current or former employees, or involving domestic violence that crosses over from home to work for an employee, requires a committed, immediate, and intelligent response. The best approach, and one that develops solutions to internal and external threats of violence, involves the creation and operation of a Threat Assessment Team (TAT). This group can successfully manage any threat to the organization, including anonymous threats, cyber threats, reputational threats, or potential acts of violence, by using a structured threat assessment process. Led by a local Springfield, Missouri expert, who is nationally known for his 30-year career in violence prevention, this program teaches this process.

Who should attend:
Human Resources, Operations, Security, and Safety Professionals, Risk Managers, Business Leaders, Business Owners, Department Heads, and Managers.

Cost: $289 per person
