Another week, another mass shooting in the US.
After each incident, the local mayor proposes new ways of reducing gun violence. The state governor usually joins in. And nothing ever gets done. There has been more than 250 mass shootings in the US in 2019 so far.
What if your workplace and colleagues were the target of the next deranged shooter? Would you be ready? Do you have the right policies, training, controls and culture in place to prevent or defeat an attack?
If your organization’s code of ethics promises a safe workplace to its employees (as most codes do), you’ve obligated yourself to be ready. Don’t count on your government, at least not in the US.
