Workplace Violence Prevention
The Workplace Violence Research Institute estimates that each day, 16,400 workers are threatened, 723 employees are attacked, and 43,800 employees are harassed. Even more disturbing is the fact that approximately 600 work-related homicides occur every year.
And estimates indicate that workplace violence costs employers $36 billion each year in lost productivity, loss of life, injuries, employee counseling, legal fees, and court awards.
