Active Shooter/Workplace Violence Risk & Insurance Programs
This seminar is designed to teach agents and brokers about Active Shooter / Workplace Violence Risk & Insurance Programs. By learning about Active Shooter / Workplace Violence Risk & Insurance Programs, agents and brokers will better serve their clients as well as avoid E&O situations.
The rising numbers of Active Shooter / Deadly Weapon attacks are a bit staggering with organizations having a duty of care to maintain a safe environment for staff and visitors. In the event of an active shooter attack, they could be held liable. There are significant challenges to organizations in securing their place of business while managing a vast throughput of people. These organizations are particularly at risk from a lone attacker who could enter unchallenged. Organizations have realized large financial losses and have been successfully sued for negligent security.
With the increased publicity of recent shootings McGowan’s Active Shooter/Workplace Violence Insurance, was recently highlighted in interviews with local media and national news with Reuters / The Wall Street Journal / RIMS along with PRIMA (Public Risk Management Association). We feel education is critical and local independent agents should reach out to the local media and community to do the same. This course will assist them in doing so.
