“Terrorism” is a word often heard in the headlines, but what exactly does this menacing term mean? Global Safety’s comprehensive terrorism emergency preparedness training will help you identify what constitutes a terrorist attack, and how best to respond to it. Unbeknownst to many, terrorism is both a foreign and domestic threat, and homegrown terrorism is on the rise in the United States. Even if you think that your workplace is immune to such a danger, no place is invulnerable. Although terrorist attacks are sudden and unpredictable, adequate emergency preparedness and response training can help minimize injury or death.
A terrorist attack seeks to destroy not only the lives of killed, but also those who survive it. High incidences of PTSD, substance abuse, and other mental health disorders are often reported in the wake of a terrorism emergency. In addition to being a major public health crisis, this can lead to a drastic decrease in workplace productivity and morale. In order to combat this huge setback to your business, it is essential that you and your staff undergo adequate terrorism emergency preparedness training.
At Global Safety, we have the tools and expertise that you need in order to help you effectively prepare for and respond to a terrorist attack. Since different types of attacks require different protocols, we will walk you through several specific scenarios and possible outcomes. The world may be a scary place, but your workplace doesn’t have to be. Get in touch with us today.
