The United States suffered the worst mass shooting in its modern history, when 49 people were killed and 53 injured in Orlando, Fla., after a gunman, armed with an AR-15 Rifle and a Glock Handgun, stormed into a packed gay nightclub. The gunman was killed by a SWAT team. He was identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen.
1 in 4 people in this country has a diagnosable mental illness. Every family you know has some member who is considered to be “different”, or is being treated for some mental condition. Omar’s 1st wife said he was Bi-Polar, a mental illness. The recent mass murder in Nice, France, that killed 84 innocent people and injured more than 300 was carried out by a person who was reportedly mentally ill and had no known extremist connections.
In the workplace, you may be called upon to mitigate a crisis situation involving a person with mental illness. If not handled with skill and knowledge, the damage could not only be measured in fixtures or injuries, but the dollars that it will cost your organization or community for such perceived negligence.
In a country that allows concealed carry, where people that are petty criminals, terrorists, and mentally ill, walk the streets freely, it is important to be able to identify them, and know what to do, before a crisis situation arises. Dangerous people, who may be on a robbery or terrorist mission, walk our streets and facilities on a daily basis. It is paramount that your company has a plan to minimize that possibility. It is also important that employees know how to spot impending danger to fellow employees, as well as themselves.
Join this webinar with expert speaker Jim Zalud as he helps you prepare yourself for facing the dangers of the twenty-first century head on. He will be discussing the ways in which you can spot dangerous people who walk beside you freely, and how you can take steps to minimize possibilities of any catastrophic mishap around you.
