As frightening of a statistic this figure is, it is likely that number is higher because as we have discussed on this blog, many cases of workplace violence go unreported.





OSHA has published a Fact Sheet on workplace violence and its prevention.


Amongst other matters, this Fact Sheet advises how to report occupational violence to OSHA, an agency of the United States Department of Labor.
