Work-related homicides, Oklahoma, 1998-2004.
Oklahoma City, OK: Oklahoma State Department of Health, 2005 Aug; :1-4
Work-related violence is a concern for occupational safety and health professionals. Nearly two million workers are victims of violent crime each year. The costs related to workplace violence are difficult to estimate, but are suspected to run into the billions of dollars. Included in the financial burden are lost work time, reduced productivity, health care costs, workers' compensation payments, legal expenses, and costs of security. Beyond economic consequences, employers and employees are faced with other costs and intangible effects, such as emotional and physical trauma and other long-term sequelae, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, sense of security issues, or disruption of trust.
