Do you have an `exit plan` at your place of work in case a disgruntled employee or family member brought in a gun?

well i'm still in school, but yes, we do have a plan for what we call a 'lockdown'

We wouldn't need this if work wasn't highly stressful nowadays.

No, we live under the assumption that everyone's okay with everything.

Someone's going to get capped one of these days, I'm positive.

we call a manager with a code 99 and they handle the situation.

My sort of generic, multipurpose escape plan is to get into my car and start driving toward some remote area that my pursuer is unlikely to be familiar with.

Ha, no, now that I think about it.

I'm in a little office off the main room that only has one entrance/exit and no windows. Plus, the door to my office doesn't even close, much less lock.

I'd be screwed.

Umm, I'd just bail to the closest exit...if they didn't shoot me first.

No, that kind of thing doesn't happen over here, heh. But obviously we do have escape plans for fires/bomb threats etc. Actually there was a hoax bomb planted where I used to work, but I was out at the time.

We work in an automotive shop, and there are plenty of exits.

I doubt there is one. I don't even know the procedure for when the tornado siren goes off.

Um, no. I don't think disgruntled people coming to kill us is much of a risk, most people just yell and storm out if they are mad. More so is the risk of robbery. I don't think there is much of a plan except to give them whatever is in the till and comply.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 4/19/08 - 3:06:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope. People here have to have background checks and stuff, so the ones we hire are usually fairly sane.

LOL I was thinking about it just a moment ago... I am still in college... In the classroom we are usually in, there are two doors. I sit near one. If someone gets mad, I am just going to have to use the person right at my side as a human shield and leave staight through the door. No problem. I have an accurate escape plan :D

Um, no...
