According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, an estimated 1.7 million violent assaults occur in the workplace each year. Lost work time and wages, reduced productivity, medical costs, workers’ compensation payments, and legal expenses have tallied billions of dollars over the past decade. A workplace violence incident resulting in serious bodily injury or death will often prove more costly than the average business can afford.
Incidents of these types will not only put many out of business, civil litigation and in some cases criminal action can be taken against those who fall under the responsibility of vicarious liability such as business owners and managers. Contact us to schedule this training for your workforce.
