Workplace violence, which is the second most common cause of death at work, often gets little or no attention. This paper first discusses the three groups that the Department of Justice has classified as workplace violence. It then looks at the cost to businesses, the warning signs of workplace violence, and ways of preventing it.

From the Paper:

"In spite of the steady rise in workplace violence, including everything from robberies to raging employees to stalking and domestic violence by third parties, IOMA found that more than 20% of the companies they questioned had no formal policy, and almost 40% had no training programs, either for management or rank and file employees. Even more startling, about 10% didn't even have any system for tracking complaints when they occurred. A company cannot implement a thoughtful and effective workplace violence prevention policy and program if they are not even keeping track of the risk within their own walls."
