EXPERT SAYS THAT WORKPLACE SHOOTINGS ARE CAUSED BY POOR MANAGEMENT

Johns Hopkins Shooting Turns Prestigious Hospital into Crime Scene

2 million employees of U.S. businesses are victimized each year. While at work employees suffered 396,000 aggravated assaults, 84,000 robberies, 1,000 homicides and 51,000 rapes and sexual assaults against women.

U.S. Department of Justice

Criminal analyst, Dale Yeager believes that most violence committed on the job could be stopped with proper training and management changes.

Yeager of SERAPH.net, who has studied the trend for the past 20 years, says that all workplace shootings are preventable.

“In each workplace shooting there were numerous indicators of the shooters exhibiting aggression and being socially isolated. These are two volatile components for a workplace crime.” says Yeager. “Workplace shootings are a direct result of poor management of employees.  A well managed organization is a safe organization.”

Yeager says that a profile has been created by the U.S. Justice Department to identify individuals who are most likely to committee these types’ violent acts:

1. Male, 25-50 years of age.

2. High stress level usually caused by financial problems or workplace conflicts.

3. Socially isolated [few friends or activities outside of work, usually separated or divorced].

4. If married, has a deteriorating home life.

“The security of companies begins and ends with the hiring of quality people, effective discipline of problem employees, holding managers accountable for aggressive behavior and the proper monitoring of fired employees.” says Yeager.
