Nearly 13,000 American workers are injured each day and each injury is preventable.
Every year, 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence. This violence fits into four categories:
- Criminal intent
- Personal relationship (most involving women).
The deadliest situations involve an active shooter.
Every organization needs to address workplace violence through policy, training and the development of emergency action plans. While there is no way to predict an attack, be aware of warning signals that might signal future violence and know the company policy and procedures regarding this issue.
