Any time there’s a large gathering of people (think: concert, parade, sporting event, corporate event, fundraiser, or a whole host of other happenings), physical security is paramount. Why? Events have many moving pieces, any one of which could be vulnerable to a security threat at any time. Finding these threats in advance goes a long way toward keeping people safe and out of harm’s way.
Hostile encounters with patients and other violence against healthcare workers. Aggressive, antagonistic behavior between coworkers. Active shooter incidents like the one in an Oklahoma medical building in 2022 left four dead. These are all examples of workplace violence in healthcare that as many as 62% of healthcare workers say they’ve experienced.
Even the best physical security companies can’t prevent every risk. Bad things happen outside of our control every day. That’s why it’s important to train your security officers, test them, and train again. However, training is only one part of the equation. You need security company insurance as well.
