2012 has been a turbulent year in the US with more than enough violence and more than enough lives lost. Workplace violence is described as any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide. It can affect and involve employees, clients, customers and visitors. Homicide is currently the fourth-leading cause of fatal occupational injuries in the United States. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), of the 4,609 fatal workplace injuries that occurred in the United States in 2011, 10% were workplace homicides.
