Tragically workplace violence and active shooter incidents continue to rise. Each year nearly two million American workers are victims of workplace violence. In fact, according to Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), workplace violence is the second leading cause of work-site deaths in the US.

These acts are typically committed by:
- Customers, clients, patients, other third parties
- Employees or supervisors
- Domestic partners or relatives of employees.
