2 Million Victims of Workplace Violence Annually

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) states “Nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year. Unfortunately, many more cases go unreported… workplace violence can strike anywhere, anytime, and no one is immune.” OSHA also states homicide is the leading cause of death for women in the workplace and the fourth overall cause of all deaths at work. With shocking statistics like this everyone needs to learn to distinguish between a routine conflict and possible warning signs of aggression and violence.

The Video On Demand training courses, “Workplace Violence,” explains violence by type, sources of violence, warning signs and appropriate responses to aggression and violence.   These short programs could help you save a life, maybe your own.
