Many employers are questioning how to protect their employees from violence in the wake of the May 31 shooting in Virginia Beach. Tragically, Virginia Beach is only the most recent instance of an increasing trend of workplace violence. In 2016 alone, there were 500 workplace homicides according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The National Safety Council reports approximately 823 workplace deaths resulting from violence in 2017.
