Workplace violence is consistently rated among the top concerns of American corporations, and for good reason — Workplace violence is a serious threat to organizations and their employees. It’s impossible to overstate the damage caused by workplace violence. A single incident can have sweeping repercussions including injury to staff members, significant losses due to legal fees, and lower morale and productivity. Despite this threat, over 75% of all workplace violence incidents are never reported to management or law enforcement.
So, what is workplace violence? Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide.
