The organizational context of non-lethal workplace violence : Its interpersonal, temporal, and spatial correlates.
This article examines 993 violent incidents involving faculty, students, and staff that occurred at a highly ranked teaching and research university and its affiliated medical center.
Violent incidents were included in the sample if they involved facully, students, or staff, regardless of their specific location or context (ie, whether they occurred on campus and/or off-campus and whether they occurred within the context of work or some other activity).
The theoretical goal of the project was to compare work-related incidents with non-work-related incidents of interpersonal violence occurring in a single, multifunctioning, and professionally hierarchical organization.
Data were collected over a 7-year period from three police departments (city, county, and university), university records, and criminal history records obtained from the state police.
The coding protocol was developed to capture crime-scene information pertinent to each of the incidents.
This included information about the victim, the perpetrator, the relationship between the victim and perpetrator, and the violent incident.
The data were examined using nonparametric statistics and logistic regression to model predictive differences between the workplace and non-workplace incidents.
The results suggest that the workplace incidents of violence differ from the non-workplace incidents according to their time, victim age, degree of victim injury, and whether the workplace is a medical location. (...)
