Violence is pervasive in the workplace.
Homicides are a major cause of death among workers, but their impact and cost are considerably outweighed by the prevalence of near-misses, physical assaults, abusive behavior, and threats of violence, much of which remains unreported and unrecognized.
Violence is not just a criminal justice problem nor just one involving aberrant behavior attributable to alcohol, drugs, or mental illness.
It is often predictable and preventable.
This article describes a plan for a coordinated effort by employers, workers, occupational health professionals, and other relevant specialists to develop and implement a coherent set of strategies for prevention and intervention.
