What’s my liability?

Workplace Violence is growing threat to the safety and financial stability of organizations worldwide. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) every year there are approximately 1.2 million workdays lost as a result of Workplace Violence. This represents more than $55 million in lost wages and over $120 billion in overall costs to employers. The true situation is even more dire as recent studies show that Workplace Violence events are underreported by as much as 30%.

Workplace Violence presents a significant liability risk as well. The average jury award for resulting from successful litigation of a Workplace Violence incident now exceeds $3 million with negotiated out of court settlements averaging $500,000 per incident.

Implementation of a comprehensive Workplace Violence training program in concert with an industry standard Threat Assessment and Management program can create a safer and more secure work environment while significantly reducing your organization’s liability. We can help.
