OSHA requires employers to provide employees with a safe working environment under the General Duty Clause. OSHA must show the following: The employer failed to keep the workplace free from a hazard that employees were exposed to, the hazard is recognized, the hazard was likely to cause death or serious physical harm, there was a feasible and economically viable way to correct the hazard. An active threat to the workplace falls under this category. This presentation will demonstrate how easy it is to meet this requirement, where a number of resources are, and will review simple exercises you can do with your employees to give them knowledge and confidence in the face of an active threat. The class will engage attendees with interactive activities that have an underlying effect of jump starting the planning process. Attendees are encouraged to go online and review the "Ready Houston: Run-Hide-Fight" video prior to the class. It is only seven minutes and can be found on You Tube.

Learning Outcomes: 
1. Identify why active threat training should be an integral part of their company's safety training program.
2. Distinguish what resources are available from the government and private industry to help them get a program started.
3. Determine the importance of planning ahead to respond to an active threat in the workplace.
