SURVEY OF WORKPLACE VIOLENCE PREVENTION, 2005 [27 October 2006] http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshwc/osnr0026.txt or http://www.bls.gov/iif/oshwc/osnr0026.pdf [full-text, 18 pages]
[excerpt] Nearly five percent of the 7.1 million private industry business establishments in the United States had an incident of workplace violence within the 12 months prior to completing a new survey on workplace violence prevention (table 1). Although about a third of these establishments reported that the incident had a negative impact on their workforce, the great majority of these establishments did not change their workplace violence prevention procedures after the incident; almost 9 percent of these establishments had no program or policy addressing workplace violence (tables 2 and 3).
These new data are from a special survey conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), U.S. Department of Labor, for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Survey of Workplace Violence Prevention looks at the prevalence of security features, the risks facing employees, employer policies and training, and related topics associated with maintaining a safe work environment. Data are available for private industry, State government, and local government by industry and size of establishment, that is, the number of workers employed. Over 128 million workers were employed at the 7.4 million establishments represented by the survey.
