Prohibit Weapons in the Workplace 

From a recent HR newsletter that came across my desk...
It’s not surprising, but a recent report in the American Journal of Public Health clearly shows that employers who adopt policies restricting weapons in the workplace are more likely to protect their employees. Workplaces where weapons are permitted were about five (5) times more likely to experience a homicide than those where weapons were prohibited.

Every employer should have a written policy prohibiting weapons in the workplace. Don’t assume it’s common sense - it isn’t to the employee who brings the weapon to work.

Gosh, this makes me want to rethink the whole consultant thing... maybe I DO belong in the workplace, huh?
