Workplace Violence in your workplace; the consequences are many, unpredictable, and can be severe. Injury or death of employees, customers, and/or visitors from workplace violence, resulting in lawsuits, property damage, increased insurance premiums, OSHA enforcement actions, increases employee turnover and reduced community trust.
Factors that appear to be driving an increase in workplace violence include-
Changes in Social Norms and Expectations
Trigger Events such as layoffs, downsizing etc.
Reduced Availability of Psychological and Addiction Services
The “Copy Cat” Effect after well-publicized incidents.
Homegrown Domestic Terrorists
Increased Opioid Addition
Violence in the workplace is a subject employers need to address with policies, programs and procedures that prevent violence and mitigate harm when it occurs. While any workplace may experience a workplace violence incident, those with public contact, such as retail, hospitality, healthcare and sales have the highest risk. Workplace violence is a leading cause of death and injury for managers and others who supervise employees.
