Workplace Violence, 4 hours

In the United States, millions of workers experience violence or the threat of violence in their workplace every year. These crimes range from physical assaults to robbery and homicide. Although the numbers of such crimes have significantly declined over the past 20 years, workplace violence is the second-leading cause of occupational injury in the United States. In addition, recent school and workplace mass shootings, as in the Sandy Hook Elementary School and Washington Naval Shipyard shootings, have had a devastating and lasting impact not only on their community but also on the entire nation.
