Understanding and Managing the Potential Risks of Workplace Violence

Each year approximately 2 million people are victims of workplace violence in the United States, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH). Yet, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, almost nine percent of businesses reporting an incident had no program or policy in place to address workplace violence.

Employers should understand the potential risks of a violent event in the workplace, develop a plan to respond to such events, and know how to reduce the severity of the loss they might experience.
