About the Training

Armed Robbery Response Seminar Training

CARTA offers a four hour classroom seminar training session which enables employees to walk through the mental thought process of a robbery situation in a controlled, comfortable and stress-free environment. This interactive, hands-on training can be customized to suit your unique workplace conditions.

Key Employee Benefits

  • Minimizes Risk of Injury during a Robbery - get the knowledge, procedures and confidence to respond to a robbery safely and effectively.
  • Training in Post Robbery Procedures - the rate of apprehension of robbery suspects is greatly increased if employees follow post robbery procedures.
  • Develop Effective Strategies for Observation – using planned strategies at a time of stress means employees greatly increase the scope and reliability of their
    “offender” descriptions.
  • Effective response to Bomb Threat Situations – not all threats involve robbery. Employees may encounter bomb or other threats motivated by greed or other
    personal situations.

Key Employer Benefits

  • Helps manage Bill C-45 Legislation (Criminal Liability of Organizations) liability for all decision makers that could arise from a robbery incident where an employee is seriously injured or killed in your workplace.
  • Helps management comply with requirements under the Canada Labour Code Regulation 19 (Hazard Prevention Program) which covers all federally regulated industries including financial institutions.

Bill C-45 – A Powerful Incentive for Robbery Mitigation Training

Many companies take occupational health and safety obligations seriously. In addition to the Canada Labour Code Regulation 19 - Hazard Prevention Program, a 2004 amendment to Bill C-45 redefined corporate responsibility. These changes are expressed in the duty of decision-makers as follows:

“Everyone who undertakes, or has the authority, to direct how another person does work or performs a task is under a legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to that person, or any other person arising from that work or task.”*

Disregard of this duty resulting in bodily harm or death can result in a change of criminal negligence.

Cash sensitive businesses operate in an environment where robbery is considered to be a high risk factor for employee workplace health and safety. Acceptable risk mitigation activity includes appropriate robbery response training and is the responsibility of all supervisors.
