Are you protecting staff on your campus?

How safe are the staff and faculty members on your campus?

With instances such as bomb threats on the rise, schools are continually looking for ways to protect themselves, as a whole, from violent large-scale attacks.

However, is enough being done on campuses to provide individualized protection for more isolated events involving staff members? While outside intruder-types pose a risk, there is certainly more to consider.

What about upset parents of students? Threatening confrontations between a parent and teacher/faculty member can significantly compromise staff safety. Anytime a parent is frustrated about a situation involving their child’s teacher — whether warranted or unwarranted — emotions can run high. While some disputes, like a recent occurrence in New York City, are more significant than others, campus staff and faculty can experience a heightened sense of safety through Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) alerts.

Consider this question: How can staff members feel secure in the event a fellow staff member poses a danger?

As with many other workplaces, staff members in educational settings often spend more time with co-workers than with members of their own families. As workdays grow long and patience runs short, disputes and frustration between staff members can become a reality. In rare occasions, these spats can turn violent or dangerous to the point where a teacher or faculty member needs to call out for help.
