Manage the Growing Risk of Violence and Create a Safe Workplace

More than 2 million reports of workplace violence are made each year, and the latest statistics show that 18,400 workers were injured — and 458 people were killed — in 2017. Yet, despite the growing prevalence, most employers that experience workplace violence say they never saw it coming. They had no advance warning, saw no hint of trouble, and recorded no previous incidents.
