Abstract
Violence increasingly is viewed as a preventable public health problem and not as an inherent aspect of the human condition. Like other types of violence, the potential for violence in the workplace has been recognized to occur whenever workers come into contact with customers, clients, patients, co-workers, and supervisors. Many occupations have involved an inherent risk for criminal violence, such as law enforcement, corrections, taxi service, mental health care, and convenience store service.
