In today’s society, workplace threats can happen anywhere and at any time. Often, the companies that experience workplace violence never saw it coming and had no plans in place to reduce the effects of a security breach. Some two million American workers are victims of workplace violence each year. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in two-thirds of workplace homicides, the assailant has no known personal relationship with the victim. While assailants can be contractors, members of the public, clients, or suppliers, our first thoughts often shift to current and former employees, their friends and even their families when an incident of violence occurs in the workplace.
