Security and Terror Alerts training
The UK Security Service, MI5, has categorised the current threat level for international terrorism as severe, which means that a terror attack within the UK is highly likely. Whilst there have been threats before from different types of organisations, it seems as though terrorism has become a much more serious issue in recent times.
No matter what the cause, it does make sound commercial, legal and reputational sense for organisations to develop a clear response to security and terror threats. It is unlikely that all risks can be removed, but having a plan that protects people and assets and sets out a response to major disruptions is essential for business continuity.
The EssentialSkillz Security and Terror Alerts eLearning course explains how an effective response plan can be developed and implemented. It explores the different reasons behind terrorist and security threats and provides examples on how to manage threats effectively. Being able to identify targets and types of threat is essential in a successful response, so the course examines the range of activities that could constitute a threat – from suspect parcels and packages to threatening calls.
A core part of the course explains the evacuation process and broader procedures for dealing with an emergency. The course details the stages in an effective process, including gathering the relevant information from a threatening phone call, taking decisions to evacuate and supporting security services to locate the threat. Crucially, the course highlights key warning signs, and the importance of staying cautious and alert.
Like all the EssentialSkillz courses, the Security and Terror Alerts eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
