It is critical to be proactive in assessing workplace safety. How can a company prevent workplace violence?
On a normal day, we clock in, we work hard, and we clock out. It is business as usual; nothing eventful happens. Yet, workplace violence is a real threat. Homicides are now the leading cause of non-accidental workplace deaths. Whether the assailant is a spouse, a current or former employee, a customer, or a random stranger, workplace safety cannot be assumed. One insult, one threat, one punch, one gunshot — any of these situations will have devastating effects on your hardworking staff.
