Whether you work in higher education, business, government, a library, retail, manufacturing, or anywhere, it is not easy dealing with the public—or even coworker. A workplace may be any location either permanent or temporary where an employee performs any work-related duty. Workplace violence is any physical assault, threatening behaviour, or verbal abuse occurring in the work setting.

Know the Warning Signs

Some people commit violence because of revenge, robbery or ideology – with or without a component of mental illness. While there is no way to predict an attack, you can be aware of behaviours in coworkers that might signal future violence:
  • Excessive use of alcohol or drugs
  • Unexplained absenteeism, change in behaviour or decline in job performance
  • Depression, withdrawal or suicidal comments
  • Resistance to changes at work or persistent complaining about unfair treatment
  • Violation of company policies
  • Emotional responses to criticism, mood swings
