Chapter 6: Workplace violence
Restricted access

This chapter extends the discussion beyond the usual concepts of bullying and harassment. When B≈H becomes widespread and common in an organization, it may evolve into acts of violence, or it may trigger some individuals inside or outside the organization to react violently. Workplace violence, as used here, refers to any substantial threat, injury, or attack on an organization's physical, human, informational, tangible, or intangible assets. If not addressed, workplace violence can lead to disastrous consequences both economically and in terms of personal tragedy.
