Preparing for the Unthinkable: What to Do If Violence Enters the Workplace, October 20, 2021 (Option 2)

In lieu of an in-person 3C’s conference this year, NWPPA will hold a 3C’s Month in October filled with a robust offering of popular NWPPA courses that we have run in the past as well as brand new content, all delivered as webinars! 

Webinar Overview:

Workplace violence, unfortunately, is a possibility for any business. While we can hope we never experience a violent situation at work, it can be empowering to prepare and know what to do if the unthinkable happens.

Duncan Hoss of the Clark County Sherriff’s Department has responded to and investigated several workplace and school violence events in his long law enforcement career. He has a passion to share key information that can help you should you find yourself experiencing a workplace violence situation. Hoss will lead the class through prevention, assessing your physical surroundings, and adjusting habits to reduce the likelihood of violence to begin with. He will also help you learn how to identify potential threats early. Finally, Hoss will walk you through what to do if you find yourself in the middle of a violent situation and what to expect when the police arrive.

Webinar recordings can be made available to registrants who are unable to attend live.
