Chapter Meeting Presentation:
Concealment or Cover – An Active Shooter Awareness/Workplace Violence Training Program for Businesses
REALITY: Workplace violence incidents occur everyday. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), from 2006 to 2010, an average of 551 workers per year were killed as a result of work-related homicides. In 2010, BLS reported a total of 518 workplace homicides, or 11 percent of all fatal work injuries that occurred that year. A total of 77 of those were multiple-fatality homicide incidents in which two or more workers were killed, including 69 homicides and 8 assailant suicides, all of whom were in work status at the time of the incident.
