We never saw it coming. He was always a quiet guy. Everyone gets along here.

We all like to think the best of our co-workers, staff, and office environments.  But the statistics, coupled with high-profile incidents of workplace violence like last year’s San Bernardino attack, are prompting more employers to examine what, if anything, can be done to reduce risks, and to better prepare their people for a possible violent incident in their workplace.

The frequent occurrence of workplace violence - nearly 2 million American workers report having been victims of workplace violence each year according to the US Department of Labor - is also driving regulatory changes that in the future could potentially impact all employers.

New Cal/OSHA regulations go into effect next month requiring workplace violence prevention programs in a wide range of healthcare-related fields, for example, foreshadowing the type of regulatory action that is likely to impact employers in businesses of every industry and size. Familiarizing yourself with these regulations now can help your organization get ahead of the game.

Regardless of the driver, businesses can and must step up their efforts to identify risks – environmental and human – while taking actions to reduce the likelihood of workplace violence and prepare effective responses to possible incidents.
