What We Do

Active shooter violence is on the rise, particularly in workplaces. According to OSHA’s General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (applicable to all business in the United States), employers must provide their employees with a workplace that is “free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious harm.” Courts have interpreted this provision as a legal obligation for all businesses, and this has led to significant legal action and awards for damages against businesses from victims of workplace violence. The costs associated with these actions run into the millions of dollars.

It is vital for businesses to safeguard against future damages, both physical and financial. Our team of experienced professionals is here to help do just that, for you.

What began as an idea at the Mistry Family Office is now a successful company driven by two simple, important goals:

  • To empower American Citizens to save lives,

  • To mitigate liabilities to businesses by helping them follow the law.

The cost of our award-winning Active Shooter Defense Training is a fraction when compared to the potential damages caused by a lawsuit. Plus, participation in our program ensures OSHA compliance. Our education and training gives you a customized safety and defense plan that will protect both lives and assets.

There are numerous ways this class educated me on what to do should an active shooter become part of our environment. For me, the defense portion was perhaps the most needed and educating piece of the class. I immensely enjoyed this class!!!!”
