Incidents of workplace violence are way more common than they should be. And while this type of violence can be found across industries, workers at retail outlets, bars, and restaurants tend to be more prone to it. The holidays can only make the situation worse, both because of personal stresses and crowded environments.
In this edition of our Taking Stock publication, we look at how organizations can create a culture of safety in their workplace, ensuring that they take a zero tolerance approach to violence and safety issues across the board. We also explore how businesses should deal with an incident and how risk managers can transfer this risk.
