Terrorism and the Workplace

The terrorist attacks in Paris and threats to launch attacks on American soil are wake-up calls to employers to plan for the worst. A strong workplace safety plan including staff training is essential, no matter the size or type of organization.

If your organization’s safety plan has been gathering dust on the shelf, now is the time to dig in and verify it still meets your needs. Here’s a few questions to get started:

  • Do employees understand their roles and responsibilities in the event of an emergency?
  • Does it address terrorist events, like active shooters and bomb threats?
  • For employees who may travel outside the US, what preparation are they given?
