Workplace violence—it can happen in any organization, at any time. Make sure your employees are prepared.
Every year, two million American workers become victims of violence at work.1 Every private and public sector organization in the United States is increasingly at risk from a variety of security threats, including workplace violence, thefts, property damage, and cyber-attacks. More than one-third (36%) of organizations have reported incidents of workplace violence. From schools to night clubs to the Navy Yard, every employer is at risk.
Minimizing the risk and teaching employees how to work safe is an important first step. Also important is developing policies and protocols for dealing with violent or potentially violent encounters, and ensuring that every employee knows what to do when "it's not a drill."
Hoping that workplace violence won't strike your organization is simply not realistic.
Minimizing the risk and preparing for the worst is realistic, and a workplace imperative.
