From the Paper:

"According to Antai-Otong (2001), "Workplace violence is at epidemic levels and grips our society. Workplace murder is the leading cause of death in working women (35% of all female workplace deaths) and the second leading cause of death in working men" (125). Furthermore, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics figures for 1995 showed that 1,071 workers were murdered in the workplace in 1994; the incidence of workplace murders is just one aspect of workplace violence though. "There is growing recognition that all employees face some exposure to violence, by virtue of association with co-workers and client populations. Some data show an estimated 2 million people in the United States are assaulted each year by co-workers and 6.3 million are threatened by co-workers" (Antai-Otong 2001:125). Certainly, violence and assault can take place in any type of work setting regardless of the occupation of the group; however, Chenier (1998) notes that these incidents are rarely isolated, but that there are few employers with preventive programs in place to sufficiently address the needs of their workplace."
