Every day employees leave their families and head off to work; as a business it is our responsibility to ensure that our employees are provided with a safe working environment and that they return home safely each evening.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. Statistics show that nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence every year with many cases going unreported. OSHA reports that homicides are currently the fourth leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States. These numbers are staggering and employers must prepare for the potential of violence.
The truth is, workplace violence can strike anywhere, anytime, and no one is immune. With workplace violence trends rising, we need to be prepared for the worst scenarios.
