Workplace Violence Protection (Armed)
Sometimes, bad things do happen to good people and the statistics are sobering. Some 2 million American workers are victims of workplace violence every year. According to NIOSH these acts result in 240,000 injuries each year with approximately 1,000 fatalities. Each non-fatal incident costs approx $250,000 in lost productivity, losses and legal fees.
Homicide remains the third leading cause of fatal occupational injuries for all workers and the second leading cause of fatal occupational injuries for women.
Preparation and training are key to having your employees effectively escalate problem behavior to management levels. If they do not know how to communicate these issues and do not recognize the warning signs of impending violent behavior then you may be faced with an extreme situation that may have been avoidable.
There are always warning signs in cases of workplace violence; unfortunately in many situations these signs are ignored or not escalated.
