Workplace Violence Prevention Strategies and Research Needs   [open pdf - 651KB]

"As part of its WPV [workplace violence] Research and Prevention Initiative during 2003, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) convened a series of stakeholder meetings that focused on various types of WPV and the industries and occupations at risk. For example, separate meetings addressed domestic violence in the workplace, violence in health care facilities, violence in retail settings, and violence against law enforcement and security professionals. The purpose of these meetings was to bring together subject matter experts from business, academia, government, and labor organizations to discuss current progress, research gaps, and collaborative efforts in addressing WPV. One of the recurring discussion points that emerged from the meetings was the need for a national conference on WPV prevention. […] This report summarizes discussions that took place during the conference. The report does not include a documented review of either the literature on WPV in general or intervention effectiveness research in particular. In addition, the authors have consciously avoided adding the NIOSH perspective to this report or otherwise augmenting its content. We have preferred to represent as accurately as possible the information, ideas, and professional judgments that emerged from the discussions that took place at the Baltimore workshop."
