Store manager killed by robber in Wyoming.
NIOSH 1993 May; :1-3
On November 25, 1992, the manager of a grocery store had unlocked and entered his store alone, when he was confronted by a person who had entered the building overnight through a roof opening and was in the process of robbing the grocery. During the confrontation, the robber allegedly stabbed the store manager and escaped. Employers may be able to minimize the potential for occurrence of this type of incident through the following precautions: 1. Insist that employees with responsibility for morning store openings be accompanied by at least one other person. 2. Institute or enhance training sessions for employees regarding attempted robbery or other violent acts.
