Does your office have a "shooter" plan?
And now, this awful murder of the two news people in Virginia, by a troublesome colleague who had actually been gone from the workplace for a year. Delusions and paranoia know no timetable, I guess.
Matthew Tarpey, CareerBuilder, says 94% of people think their workplace is reasonably protected.
Fires, floods, and similar disasters are low on most people's radar, with 85% saying they feel well protected. Eighty-three say they are not that worried about weather-related threats.
Ditto for digital attacks--70% think their office is well protected.
But only 30% say they feel protected against a man v man incident.
Nearly a fourth of workers say they would have no idea what to do if there were an emergency that posed a physical threat.
--21% said their office has no emergency plan.
--26% say there is no severe weather plan.
--40% says their company has no plan for a physical attack or a technolog security breach.
Should there be a plan? Experts say yes.
