EWI of Columbus October Chapter Meeting
How to Improve Your Situational Awareness
"Situational awareness is knowing what is going on around you and staying vigilant to any changes or threats. By becoming more aware and observant in the workplace, all employees can help maintain a safe environment and improve the safety of everyone around them."
- Securitas Security Services
Developing your situational awareness is key to helping you identify dangerous situations, recognizing a potential threat and giving you the tools to handle the situation. All it takes is one look at the news to know in this day and age, you have to be aware of your surroundings everywhere you go, both personally and professionally. In this presentation, AEP's Director of Physical Security, Sam Queeno, will equip us with ways to increase our situational awareness, give us things to look for, and explain strategies to implement should we find ourselves in a dangerous environment.
