Why Do I Need Active Shooter Training?

An active shooter is any individual who is actively shooting or attempting to shoot people in a crowded or constrained environment. Incidents involving active shooters can quickly escalate or change without any warning. During the chaos, anyone can play a significant role in reducing the effects of the incident. 

Active shooter situations are unpredictable and dynamic. When it comes to the victims of an active shooter, there is rarely any pattern or method to the selection. Because of this, you should be emotionally and physically prepared to handle an active shooter situation in any public place. This will also significantly reduce the likelihood of injury and fatality, especially since these situations are over in an average of 10 to 15 minutes and, normally, before law enforcement reaches the scene.

Do Standards Require Active Shooter Preparedness Training?

OSHA does not have any specific standards regarding active shooter training. However, they do acknowledge the value of employee preparedness when it comes to active shooter situations. Under the General Duty Clause, however, OSHA does require employers to maintain a safe and healthful work environment for their employees. This includes avoiding workplace violence such as active shooter situations. 

Due to this, employers must provide their employees with safety procedures and training courses. These resources should help to teach employees about what to do in an active shooter situation. 

What To Do In An Active Shooter Situation

One of the best-known response plans for active shooter situations is run, hide, fight. This specific program has been widely adopted as the standard protocol for active shooter events. We are not suggesting that the actions run, hide, and fight be taken in that order. Sometimes, it might be safer to perform one before another. 

Make your best determination of what is happening and which of the options below will provide the greatest degree of security for you. Running, hiding, or fighting could be an appropriate initial response, depending on the circumstances. Run when it’s safe to run. Hide when it’s safe to hide. Fight if you have no other options.

Run 

If you have access to an escape path, attempt to evacuate yourself and others. There may be routes mapped out for you; use them if they are safe. If not, think of another way out that keeps you away from the area where the shooter may be. Leave your belongings behind. Your purse, jacket, and cell phone are not as important as your life. 

Hide

Sometimes, evacuating isn’t possible. Perhaps the shooter has blocked the nearest exit, or maybe you don’t even know where the nearest exit is. Whatever the reason, if you cannot evacuate, then you should hide if it is safest. Your hiding place should be where the active shooter is less likely to find you. Find an inconspicuous spot that is out of the normal flow of foot traffic. Try to find a hiding place that would protect you if shots are fired in your direction.

Fight

You should never seek out an active shooter and instigate a confrontation. Only resort to fighting if you or others are in immediate danger. If there are other people with you who do not want to fight back, do not force them to do so. If you are in this situation, your first step is to try to remain calm. Many people who thought they could never be able to defend themselves or others have done so when needed. You can, too. Remember your survival mindset and fully commit to defending your life with physical action.

Online Safety Training FAQs

What does each online class cover?

Generally speaking, each course covers the following: 1. Overview of the Course/Introduction to the Equipment 2. Anatomy, including pre-shift inspections 3. Stability Principles 4. Common Hazards/Accident Profiles 5. Safe Operation 6. Rigging and Hand Signals (for crane courses only).

How long is the course?

Trainees go at their own pace, but in general each class (including the exam) takes anywhere from 2 to 2.5 hours. We recommend planning for two or more so you don’t end up rushing through the exam.

Are these courses OSHA-aligned?

All of our Hard Hat Training online courses were built and continue to be updated by our trainers and inspectors using OSHA and ANSI guidelines. But it is important to understand that by OSHA-aligned, we mean it follows to the best of our ability the best practices and safety principles put forth by OSHA. In an online format, it is not possible to cover every code for every situation or hazard across every industry. For this reason, our safety training solutions are tools to further knowledge and help employers train and/or certify their crew. But just because a course or program is OSHA-aligned it does not necessarily mean a company as a whole will be aligned or avoid citation if OSHA were to audit them. There is so much more that goes into collective company alignment with OSHA. For example, workers need to be observed applying in the field what they learned in the classroom. This observation/practical exam should be done by trainers, supervisors, or other designated competent persons. Whether you use our training kits or online courses, we provide guides to help employers do this. Other things that need to be done for ultimate alignment may include but are not limited to: addressing with your crew any gaps in the training or additional hazards or principles specific to your work situation; creating, training on, and enforcing and abiding by written safety programs (also known as plans or procedures); and performing regular inspections and risk assessments.

Are the e-learning classes up-to-date with OSHA standards?

Yes, all of our Hard Hat Training online courses are up-to-date with the latest OSHA standards. As standards change, we make changes to the courses. If you purchase any of our online courses outright, though, it will then be your responsibility to update the course in accordance with any changes to the standard.

Does this course certify or qualify me?

There is a lot of confusion among operators and even companies about what it means to be certified or qualified. Simply put, no, a course does not certify anyone, only an employer does. Or, in other words, because it is the employer’s responsibility to make sure an employee is properly trained, it is also his or her responsibility to say when the employee is “certified,” “qualified,” or “competent.” The online courses, like our training kits on CD or USB Drive or even live training via a 3rd party, is just a tool to help them in doing so.

According to OSHA, all operators of heavy equipment must receive operator training. Proper training must include a classroom portion including a written exam, as well as a practical hands-on portion/exam wherein the operator is observed operating the machine. The online course satisfies the required classroom portion of the training. Upon completion of the course and written exam, the safety administrator of the company will receive a checklist which can be used to observe the trainee on the machine. When done successfully, the administrator signs the bottom of the form. At this point, unless further training is required by your employer, you have done everything required by OSHA to be considered by your employer as “certified,” “qualified,” or “competent.”

If I pass this class and exam can I take my certification and get a job anywhere?

See “Does this course certify me?” This will depend on your employer. Remember, it is their responsibility to see that you are trained and if there is ever an accident, it is they who will have to prove to OSHA that they trained you sufficiently. Because of this, while some smaller businesses may simply accept your certificate and a copy of your test, more often than not they will require you to go through their own training program. This is their right to do so. It is their further responsibility to train you in accordance with the job, site, equipment, etc. Having said that, we have fielded many calls from potential employers who wanted to learn more about the classroom portion of the training we offered. After hearing our explanation, they accepted the online class as satisfying the classroom portion of the required training and proceeded to do their own practical.

How long is the training good for?

OSHA standards dictate that safety certification needs to be completed at least once every three years. Since no online course can provide “certification,” these courses will combine with your onsite practical training to fulfill OSHA’s requirements for up to three years. Having said that, refresher training is required sooner if an employee changes sites or jobs, is asked to operate a different type of the equipment, is involved in a near-miss or accident, or is observed operating the machine in a dangerous manner.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, upon successful completion of the course and exam, you will have immediate electronic access to your test, a certificate, and a checklist you can use for the practical hands-on portion of the training. Simply print them off.

How many people can use this course? Can I play it for several employees at the same time?

When a course is assigned to an employee, only that employee can take the course. There are many reasons for this, but most importantly the course is designed to train that one employee per OSHA regulations. Also, there is a final written exam at the end that will be linked to the trainee assigned. OSHA requires proof of training and if multiple people were to sit in on that one course, they would not get credit for taking it.

Can I customize the classes?

Your business’s learning portal can be completely customized for your employees including colors and logo. Additionally, if you purchase our courses outright to be used on your own company LMS (learning management system), you also get the right to rebuild them and customize them to meet your own needs. If you have Adobe Captivate, which we use to build our courses, customization is even easier.

Are SCORM/Tin Can options available for use on our own company LMS?

All of our online courses are designed to be SCORM-compatible and can be easily uploaded to your company’s current SCORM-friendly LMS. You can license their use annually or purchase them outright. Licensing or purchasing them outright does not, however, give you the right to resell or distribute our courses to parties other than those whom you are training.

If we buy or license the eLearning courses for use on our own LMS, can you customize them for us?

Yes, we have done and continue to do this for clients. Pricing depends on the extent of customization requested. Please contact us for a quote.

Can I resell these trainings?

We do have resale options available. Contact us regarding resale opportunities.

How do I Look Up My OSHA Alignment Safety Certification?

So, you have already purchased a course from us, taken the online training, and passed the certifaction exam with flying colors. Now what? Most people want to print off a copy of thier OSHA Alignment Safety Certification and keep it for your records. Learn how to do that.
