    Perhaps you've seen the video.

    Hey, Hospitals! Latest OSHA Initiative Should Get Your Attention

    Posted by Eric Myers on Jul 16, 2015


    OSHA recently delivered a pretty strong message to the healthcare industry by intensifying its enforcement efforts to target causes of workplace injuries/violence. In late June, OSHA basically took what were once recommendations and turned them into regulations as it relates to a variety of areas, including workplace violence.

    Specifically, compliance officers will be focusing on these major hazard areas (in no particular order):

         1. Workplace violence
         2. Slips, trips, and falls
         3. Musculoskeletal disorders (related to patient handling)
         4. Bloodborne pathogens
         5. Tuberculosis

    5 Pre-Planning Questions for an Informed Security Response

    Posted by Eric Myers on Jun 16, 2015


    As an advocate for Enhanced Non-Lethal technologies like the Pro V2, you'd probably expect me to be the type of guy who stands on a soapbox and preaches against arming private security officers with lethal force.

    And I'm sorry to disappoint you, but that's not always the case.

    Lethal force has its place in the private security industry, and clients ultimately decide what they are comfortable with when contracting a security provider or establishing their own internal security department. There are plenty of sensitive sites, buildings, etc. where an armed presence is very sensible. What I will advocate for, however, is layering an armed officer's force options with an Enhanced Non-Lethal tool to create an "enhanced" armed presence.

    Cameras Aren't Enough

    Posted by Eric Myers on Jun 11, 2015

    I remember responding to a number of shoplifting calls back when I was a police officer. One local store in particular seemed to have a lot of recurring issues with shoplifters, so I used to see a lot of the same faces working as Loss Prevention Agents when I'd respond.
