The Preparedness Academy provides an experienced cadre of instructors supported by a core set of curriculum offerings in full compliance with national level standards. As organizations develop both a pathway to preparedness and to compliance, we provide instructional guidelines, curriculum development tailored to organizational requirements, peer-reviewed teaching instruction, scenario development and performance measurement. All curriculum is supported by empirical research, assessment of case studies and analysis of emergent threats which impact security decisions. The Preparedness Academy provides capabilities and instructional guidelines applicable from the classroom to the boardroom. KGH hosts a fully instrumented classroom in Alexandria, VA and provides mobile preparedness teams (MPT's) for initial and refresher training.
We understand that Active Threat is not confined to active shooters; it includes insider threat, terrorism, and workplace violence. This course is designed to assist you in understanding the nature of the threat and prepare without paranoia should an ordinary day become extraordinary. In September 2012 following the shooting at Accent Signage Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota, several civil lawsuits were filed, which alleged that the company should have known from the shooter's work history that he was potentially dangerous. Following this shooting, OSHA changed its General Duty Clause to include active shooter incidents as a recognized hazard in the workplace.
Workplace violence has emerged as an important safety and health issue in today's workplace. Its most extreme form, homicide, is the third leading cause of fatal occupational injury in the United States. What is your organization going to do to be prepared?.
