BOMA/GLA WORKPLACE VIOLENCE TRAINING HIGHLIGHTS WHAT MANAGERS NEED TO KNOW

The Los Angeles Police and Fire Departments briefed a group of Valley managers and tenants on how to prepare for an active shooter and what to expect from first responders.  
 
Sgt. Michael Sequin, in the photo above, center, began the presentation by stressing that there are almost always warning signs prior to a violent incident. Information about an individual’s changed behavior is often not passed on by the tenant to the building management. Excellent communication is the key to preventing workplace violence.
