Responding to an Active Violence Situation in the Workplace

It has been a tough week in Ohio and the rest of the nation following the acts of evil in Dayton and El Paso. If you would like to help the families impacted by this tragedy, consider donating to The Dayton Foundation.

While no employer wants to think about such acts of violence occurring at the workplace, preparing employees can save lives through increased awareness, emergency action plans, and trained response protocols. Last fall, the OMA — in partnership with its safety consultant, Safex — hosted a webinar featuring Lt. Paul Ohl, SWAT platoon commander with the Columbus Division of Police, who discussed effective planning considerations for an active violence situation in the workplace. This recorded webinar is available now, free to all OMA members. 8/5/2019
