The Problem is Real

Unfortunately, it is not unusual for HR and Safety professionals to find themselves working for C-Suite leaders who minimize the risks of workplace violence incidents.

Does this sound familiar? “Nothing will happen here, we are like a big family.” Or perhaps the organization’s leadership is just plain unaware of what the actual post-incident costs can be.

In reality, workplace violence is a serious problem that can hit any organization, at any time. How do you get your executives to pay attention?

How about letting some objective statistics restart the conversation? We've gathered statistical data about workplace violence from government entities (like the Bureau of Labor Statistics and FBI), professional organizations (like the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals) and others (like the Rand Corporation). We’ve searched out these stats, so you don't have to!
 

Did you know:

  • “Nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year” (OSHA)
  • That in the 20 years between 1992 and 2012, there were OVER 14,000 workplace homicide victims (Bureau of Labor Statistics)
  • Researchers say that workplace violence incidents cost American businesses more than $6 billion each year (FBI, 2011)
