Countermeasure Consulting Group maintains that the majority of the following incidents and the resulting statistics are completely preventable. Not only are they often preventable, employers have a legal obligation to protect employees from workplace violence. According to the FBI report entitled “Workplace Violence-Issues in Response”, “Businesses are under a variety of legal obligations to safeguard their employees’ well-being and security.” These obligations stem from Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) requirements and even Civil Rights law requirements. The following statistical data clearly demonstrates that violence can happen anywhere at any time. Countermeasure Consulting Group is prepared to provide practical solutions to common workplace security issues.
