Workplace violence, or WPV, is one of the most significant security threats in America. How can you and your employees increase readiness for hostile customers and the worst type of violence, an active shooter event? What steps can be taken, or training put in place to prevent one? And if the unthinkable happens, are you prepared to manage the post-incident crisis of communications, employee care, and more?

The Power of Preparedness (TPOP) and RLPSA are launching a series of 1-hour digital seminars detailing the essentials for WPV prevention and preparedness. This vital, 5-part series led by Co-Founder and Chief Content Officer William Flynn is based on TPOP’s comprehensive training for the food service industry. The seminars will cover the following:
