On the night of Thursday, September 9, 2010, Yvonne Hiller, armed with a .357 Magnum, walked into the Kraft food plant in Northeast Philadelphia where she worked and shot dead two coworkers and critically injured a third. Before the shooting, the victims had felt so threatened by her behavior that they complained to their supervisor who suspended Hiller and she was escorted off the premises. The Kraft shooting is just the latest incident of workplace violence which continues to be a major problem in the nation's workplace. According to OSHA about 2 million employees a year are victims of workplace violence. Workplace Violence Prevention is the latest "How To" book from Government Training Inc. and it presents an easy to use seven-step process for tackling workplace violence. It describes how to understand the root causes of workplace violence and the threats that they pose. These threats are not just in terms of personal attacks - whether verbal or physical - but also the cost and damage they can do in economic terms.
