WPV Numbers for February
Here is a listing of the incidents I’ve collected for February. It is by no means an actual counting of the incidents that occurred in the United States, only the ones I’ve heard about. And that is usually because of the news or a tip from friends and colleagues.
Additionally, the total number of incidents for the year as well as those who were murdered and wounded during these incidents is listed at the bottom in the totals. I may come across as an alarmist, or it may shock some people, but it is the truth.
Workplace violence is a serious possibility and affects all Americans in some fashion. Yes, there are greater dangers in the world, however, for the time being WPV needs to be addressed adequately in the United States. WPV is one of the biggest health concerns for American workers, affecting more than half of them.
