Less Injuries and Workman’s Compensation Claims

Vistelar training and consulting services focus on addressing the entire spectrum of human conflict at the point of impact from before an interaction begins through to the consequences of how an interaction is managed.

We categorize our training and consulting services into twelve areas, with the area of Active Shooter represented by this graphic.

The tactics on this card also apply to the Workplace Violence and Lone Worker Safety areas. You can learn about these two areas and the other nine areas by clicking on a link at the right.

Here is a brief orientation to this graphic.

Stop the Threat/Assist Victims is listed first to emphasize the primary objectives of the tactics on this graphic.

Be Alert & Decisive and Respond, Don’t React are located on the sides to emphasize that these tactics should be considered at all times prior to and during an interaction.

Survival Mindset and Time Clocks are listed next to indicate that these tactics should be applied in advance of any active shooter incident.

If an active shooter incident occurs, there are three possible objectives that should be attempted in the order presented:

  • Escape
  • Barricade
  • Defend

Closure is at the bottom of the graphic to indicate that this tactic should always be the final step of any interaction.

The Active Shooter graphic is one component of Vistelar’s Systemized Structure of Tactics, which makes our methodologies easy to learn, remember, apply, and teach. In our training programs, we use these systemized-structure-of-tactics graphics in the form of physical cards that serve as handy reminders of what is taught and practiced in class.
