Work-Site Intervention to Reduce Work-Related Assault Injury

Homicide has been the second leading cause of occupational death following motor vehicle crashes since the early 1990’s. The number of workplace assaults leading to injuries, but not death, is unknown. But this number probably greatly exceeds the number of fatalities. Numerous violence prevention programs have been implemented and evaluated, but no information was gathered about which components are most successful or which intervention components work best in diff erent business settings.
