SAFE AT WORK
Have you ever wondered what you or your staff should do in the event of a safety concern? Do you know what are the risk factors and prevention strategies for workplace violence?
Workplace violence has the potential to affect any type of business or workplace, especially larger corporations. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for the U.S. Department of Labor almost 2 Million American Workers are victims of some type of workplace violence each year. It is estimated that 25 percent of workplace violence goes unreported.
