Business Counter Terrorism & Violent Crime Mitigation

Toolbox talks have been in use for many years, they are a proven cost effective approach to raising awareness of business policy, procedures, safety and action plans. the public and private sector should utilise this system to educate staff on Counter Terrorism/Hybrid Attack emergency response plans and UK Government Imitative.

Toolbox Talk Aims:

Counter Terrorism & Violent Crime policy, procedures and indicators delivered over a 5 to 10 minute period to improve the knowledge and effectiveness of staff to safe their own life’s and customers .

Business owners and line management should asked themselves the following question:

What level of understanding and awareness are the staff operating at?

  1. Unconscious Incompetence = They don’t know what they don’t know = Either no idea about the threats or living in denial = Require Educating
  2. Conscious Incompetence = They know what can be done but have no knowledge or understanding of how to do it = Require Educating
  3. Conscious Competence = Able to think their way through a situation = Understand the threats and action plans
  4. Unconscious Competence = Can automatically respond effectively = Optimum level of awareness and will help to lower the criticality of an attack

There’s no point in having policy & procedures if nobody knows about them or understands them, the toolbox system can be used to raise awareness and help save lives, build staff resilience, and reduce the criticality of an attack.

The Ostrich Syndrome maintains denial and costs life’s, the public and private sectors can develop simple systems that deliver up-skilling of all staff and improving situational awareness.

Its no different for a business with 2 staff and 100 staff, at the time of an attack, the staff need to respond effectively and apply simple action plans to lower the criticality of the attack.

There is no time to request guidance from supervisors and management, an immediate response is required by the staff at the scene, only prior planning and preparation will produce an effective decision.
