Workplace violence - it ranges from murder to harassment to belittling a co-worker. No employer is immune to workplace violence, and it costs employers millions of dollars every year and can destroy a corporate image. Even with the evidence supporting the potentially high cost of workplace violence, many employers continue to take a reactive versus proactive approach to workplace violence prevention.
What preventative programs can employers implement to reduce the risk of workplace violence? This study discusses the following regarding workplace violence: definitions, examples, statistics, types, violence cycle, reasons and risk factors, warning signs, cost, and legalities. The research, including a literature review and interviews, identifies several preventative measures employers can implement to reduce the risk of workplace violence.
