Trident Shield Launches Leading-Edge Online Training Nationwide for Workplace Active Shooter/Assailant Events
Programs Teach Accessible Readiness Skills for Work and Day-to-Day Life
Charlottesville, VA, April 24, 2018—With the rising incidence of workplace violence in the U.S., Trident Shield, the security training and consulting firm, has launched its online Active Assailant Readiness Training for workplaces of all sizes nationwide. The training is uniquely designed to deliver proactive skills in an accessible way for average people with no previous experience. It was developed by Trident Shield’s team, which includes U.S. Navy SEALS, law enforcement, U.S. military veterans and corporate security professionals.
Active Assailant Readiness Training features the Core Training Program, which teaches the mindset and skills necessary for active assailant and daily personal security, and highlights the role of domestic violence in workplace threats. It’s presented in short, easily digestible segments, with engaging interactive content and on-demand access, and provides email updates with safety tips and best practices. Trident Shield’s online Safe Workplace Program is a comprehensive workplace violence prevention program, which in addition to the Core Training Program, includes a Safe Workplace Program Implementation Guide and an Active Threat Readiness Refresher Course.
In addition to the expertise in security and self-defense techniques, the effectiveness of Trident Shield’s training is due to its non-threatening approach and delivery, which fosters greater receptivity and confidence in people unfamiliar and likely intimidated by having to protect themselves in a violent situation. This accessibility for people to have the skills they need to prepare for, prevent and recover from critical events is the core of Trident Shield’s mission.
“Learning life-saving skills and an awareness for safety and security in a relatable way empowers people, so they are more engaged and productive in their work and everyday life,” said Jason Perry, Trident Shield Founder and CEO. “Our Active Assailant Readiness Training essentially enables employers to create and sustain a culture of care for their employees.”
Trident Shield’s programs can be customized to be consistent with any corporate culture and environment. They enable employers to meet OSHA compliance requirements, and are consistent with recommendations of the DHS and the FBI. All of Trident Shield’s training is offered under the company’s WorkLife Safety™ brand, which emphasizes its applicability in all aspects of life beyond the workplace.
