The yearly cost of violence in the workplace in the United States amounts to $35.4 billion. A recent International Labour Organisation report estimates the combined burden of workplace stress and violence at 0.5 to 3.5 percent of national GDP per year. The consequences often translate to a compensatory burden, loss of productivity and personal tragedy. As these costs have been quantified, there has been recognition of workplace violence as a valid issue and major health and safety liability for enterprises, the elimination of which is necessary for success.
Even in the best of times, workplace violence is a pervasive problem that affects the lives of some 1.7 million Americans a year.
