Workplace Violence – Recognizing and Minimizing the Risk

Managers and employees alike need to be aware of the risks associated with workplace violence – this is a key component of any comprehensive risk management or workplace safety program.

While we’d all prefer to avoid dealing with workplace violence, it’s a fact that it is occurring with alarming frequency. OSHA statistics indicate that nearly two million U.S. workers report experiencing workplace violence every single year, and it seems like more and more episodes are making national and worldwide headlines.

Companies should take proactive steps to make sure that members of management are prepared to deal with a workplace violence situation if one arises, as well as how to recognize key risk factors proactively. After all, implementing preventive measures before there is a problem is a key to reducing the likelihood of experiencing a workplace violence event.

Providing training is an important aspect of any prevention effort, as it is an ideal way to ensure that company leaders know how to watch for warning signs and are prepared to handle situations that might develop as effectively as possible.
