Workplace Violence News

The U.S. Department of Labor Statistics reported 628 people died in workplace homicides in 2007. In addition to the tragic loss of lives, the costs associated with workplace violence include lost business, lower productivity, medical expenses, higher insurance rates, negative publicity, and litigation. The American Journal of Industrial Medicine estimated costs of workplace violence from 1992 to 2001 to be $6.5 billion.

With an ultimate goal of providing a violence-free work environment, states, provinces, and regulatory agencies across the U.S. and Canada have begun to address this issue with rules, regulations, and legislation.
