Have you ever thought about going to work expecting something really bad to happen? Of course not, going to work daily is part of a mechanical process. It starts when we wake up in the morning, make breakfast, prepare lunches to go, take the kids to school, check our iPhone texts “some of you while driving in stressful rush hour”, and before we know it, we arrive at work. We are already stressed out and a day full of problems is about to start.
Unfortunately, life has changed. The sad truth is that we are not safe anywhere anymore. To give you an idea:
I will leave it there because the list of unsafe places is too long.
However, let’s go back to the workplace. Nothing can prepare us better for these unpredictable tragedies than knowledge and Awareness. Yes, there are few things that we can do to prevent or to escape some of the dangers that we constantly face safely, if we are prepared. However, what shall we do?
The current potential acts of violence that we are facing today are extremely challenging for both, the public and private sectors and therefore, requires a myriad of non-traditional strategies to be prepared in the event that your office, agency, or building, either private or public, is unfortunately targeted for unexpected violence.
