The table top exercises engage various parts of your organization, from leadership and human resources to front-facing staff and facilities, to discuss their roles in a simulated event. Whether it is a table top or more of a group-guided discussion largely depends on the work group's desired engagement level. These work groups may include but are not limited to leadership, human resources, facilities, safety committee members (or floor wardens), and front-facing staff. Key personnel from these groups will work through a mock event while being offered guidance from our facilitators.
Who is this for?
This format is best suited for groups that have identified key personnel from the various work groups with experience with cooperative incident management. If needed, ALS can assist in identifying key personnel who play vital roles in the rapid response and management of these events.
TABLE TOP EXERCISE / GUIDED GROUP DISCUSSION
An ALS team member presents a scripted scenario mapped out from actual events of violence at workplace.
The proper chronology of the event is followed.
The trainer poses questions to the different work groups at various decision points.
Attendees can discuss their roles, apply policies, and ask the ALS team member questions about applied best practices.
Upon completion, ALS provides organizations with a summary divided into the following three sections:
Areas of Strength
Opportunities for Improvement
Operational Changes that they may institute.
The exercise mirrors the 5 phases of a mass violence event.
Though not mandatory, attending our initial presentation will expose participants to our prevention, preparation, and response strategies employed during the tabletop exercise.
