If you don’t think workplace violence can happen at your organization, think again! Take these all too real statistics into consideration:
- 2 million people experience some form of workplace violence.
- 1 in 7 people doesn’t feel safe in their workplace.
- 4 million Americans have been bullied at their workplace.
- Healthcare workers make up 50% of the victims related to workplace violence.
- 44% of schoolteachers also report attacks in the workplace.
- 30,000 sexual assaults occur at the workplace and are reported by women annually. And 23% of these workers, say things have gotten worse since the pandemic started.
- In 2020, 30% of the people said they were unaware of their company’s safety plan.
The list is endless! As humans, one of the most basic needs is to feel safe, and when employees spend a majority of their lives in the workplace, safety should be an employer’s top priority. Outside of basic workplace safety, employers must now take the threat of workplace violence more seriously.
