Workplace-violence prevention in the age of the "active shooter"

Recent mass shootings have had global reverberations. These events leave employers grappling with questions about steps they should take – or are legally obligated to take – to keep employees safe from harm. Under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act, all employers have a general duty to provide a safe workplace for employees. Littler Mendelson attorney Terri M. Solomon, an industry authority in preventing workplace violence, joins the NRA's Angelo Amador to discuss common employer questions:

  • Policies and practices to increase awareness, recognition and reporting of actual or potential incidents of workplace violence.
  • Warning signs of workplace violence.
  • Assessing your risk and deploying proportionate measures.
  • Whether you should conduct “active shooter” training.
