RedVector offers online courses addressing workplace violence, active shooter situations


TAMPA, FL Oct. 5, 2016 RedVector, the leader in eLearning and workforce training solutions for the architecture, engineering, construction, industrial and facility management industries, has launched workplace violence training and active shooter training to teach targeted violence protection.

Nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In 2014, of the 4,679 fatal workplace injuries that occurred in the United States, 403 were workplace homicides.

Workers have a right to a safe workplace. As targeted violence becomes a growing concern for employers and employees, RedVector has developed active shooter training and workplace violence training to raise awareness of actions that can be taken before, during and after an incident.

"Maintaining a situational awareness is so important, such as being aware of your exits and having a plan," said DW MacAdam, RedVector author, safety-security consultant and Advanced CPTED Specialist for residential and commercial properties. "The world’s different today, and it’s so important to have a response plan on how to handle violence. I am very proud to have collaborated with RedVector to launch this critical training.”

RedVector’s active shooter response training course, which is rooted in the Run Hide Fight protocol, identifies ways to prepare for, and react to, targeted violence situations. Beyond Run Hide Fight, this active shooter training outlines recommendations for interacting with first responders during targeted violence situations.

RedVector’s online workplace violence training course outlines factors that contribute to violence in the workplace, how to prevent violent incidents and how to respond and follow up to improve workplace safety. This workplace violence training course also teaches how to prioritize reporting and response procedures and create a workplace violence prevention policy.
