Safety First: What Employers Need to Know About Workplace Violence Prevention

On the afternoon of May 31, 2019, a disgruntled public employee fatally shot twelve people and wounded four others in a mass shooting at a municipal building in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Eleven were city employees, and one was a contractor in the building there to obtain a permit. The building housed the city’s public works, utilities, and planning departments in an open-government facility with no additional security to enter but security passes required for accessing employee areas and conference rooms. 

Violence in the workplace is not a new phenomenon. The most recent data gathered by the U.S. Bureau of Justice on workplace violence specific to public employees found that from 2002 to 2011, about 96 percent of workplace violence against government workers was against state, county, and local employees. Public employers and employees in particular are uniquely exposed to workplace violence.
