With the precipitous rise in violence in the US, liability associated with Hostile Events is becoming a near certainty.  Failure to have a plan in place to respond to hostile events in the workplace is being cited as the proximate cause for a finding of negligence.

What can be done to mitigate liability, and more importantly, to save lives when Workplace Violence or Active Shooter events occur? This 50-minute session will highlight recent catastrophic failures to plan, lability settlements, and Best Practice guidance to mitigate the tangible and intangible risks associated with Hostile Events.
