Workplace violence is violence or the threat of violence against workers. It can occur at or outside the workplace and can range from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and homicide.
You may never encounter aggressive or violent people where you work, but you should think seriously about the risk that something could happen. If you find yourself thinking, “It can’t happen here,” you should reconsider.
