What can you do to help prevent attacks from occurring in your organization and to best prepare your supervisors and employees?

Acts of aggression in the workplace affect millions of people each year in the US. According to OSHA, 700 people are murdered at worksites each year, and over 2 million are victims of violence. These acts of violence extend beyond active shooters, and include more sensitive issues like domestic violence and sexual assault and harassment.


Consider these startling facts:

  • 10% of the workplace fatalities that occurred in 2015 were homicides (BLS)
  • Nearly two million American workers report being victimized by workplace violence
  • Healthcare workers face a 20% higher rate of workplace violence than private‑sector employees
  • Workplace violence costs employers more than $120 billion a year, according to estimates by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
  • Students involved in school shooting incidents score on average 5% lower than their peers on standardized tests
  • The rate of workplace assaults for healthcare workers is more than every other field combined
