Workplace violence – Proactive efforts foster safe, productive work environments
Abstract: No one thinks their factory or warehouse will be the setting for a work-related homicide — until it’s too late. But much more common than well-publicized workplace shootings are threats, bullying, emotional abuse, intimidation and assaults. If left unchecked, these less severe violent behaviors can escalate into more serious situations. This article looks at the different types of workplace violence and steps that companies can take to minimize the opportunities for violence to occur.
