The shooting sprees across the country highlight what many have long known: workplace violence is disturbingly common. How common? According to a study by the Workplace Violence Research Institute, every workday 16,400 threats are made, and 723 workers are attacked. One of four full-time workers has been harassed, threatened, or attacked on the job. Workplace violence, which costs American businesses an estimated $36 billion annually, is the third leading cause of job-related deaths for all workers and the second leading cause for women. No wonder the Centers for Disease Control has called workplace violence an "epidemic."
