Type 1. Violent Acts by Criminals. Criminals who selected a workplace without any connection with employees---only to rob. This is about 80% of workplace homicides, because the criminal has a weapon, in most cases a gun and in all probability will either kill or hurt someone.
a.) Taxi Drivers---the job with maximum risk of being murdered.
b.) Late Night Retail
c.) Fast Foods Delivery Drivers
d.) Gas Station Clerks
e.) Other Night Workers---located in remote or unsafe neighborhoods.
f.) workers who made the nightly deposits or carry cash.
But sadly the employees who experience the highest rate of violence of the Type 2 are health-care workers---nurses particularly, doctors, nurses, aides in dealing with psychiatric patients; emergency medical teams; and hospital employees working in admissions, E.R.’s and crisis or critical units.
Type 4. Violence Committed in the Workplace by Non-employees. Violence by domestic abusers or any personal relations. Type 3 and Type 4 violence are as just as serious as any other violence committed against a person.
The only difference in Type 3 and Type 4 is one may receive warning signs when it is from an employee or someone close to the employee, therefore the owner/manager will see or be notified by another employee of the current issues another employee is experiencing. Therefore, preventive measures are taken to protect the other employees.
