According to an FBI report, 1.3 million nonfatal violence crimes and 600 homicides occurred in US workplaces in a recent year. These instances led to employee deaths, injuries, lost work time, emotional distress and psychological trauma—not signs of a healthy workplace that encourages working together and collaborating on ways to better serve others.

Employers can better address workplace violence by getting in front of the issue—recognizing the threat, identifying and mitigating risks, preparing employees, and providing resources to assist in preparation and response. Following an incident, organizations can evaluate identified threats and problems to then prevent them.

  • Warning indicators
  • Specific threats to the workplace

  • An organization’s workplace violence prevention plan
