In this episode of Bryghtpath Live, Bryghtpath Principal & Chief Executive Bryan Strawser discusses the new ASIS/ANSI Workplace Violence and Active Assailant – Prevention, Intervention, and Response Standard.
The newly revised and expanded standard provides an overview of policies, processes, and protocols that organizations can adopt to help identify, assess, respond to, and mitigate threatening or intimidating behavior and violence affecting the workplace. It describes the implementation of a workplace violence prevention and intervention (WVPI) program and personnel within organizations that typically become involved in prevention and intervention efforts.
In addition, this standard now includes an annex that provides actionable information and guidance relative to prevention, intervention, and response to incidents involving an active assailant/active shooter.
