Workplace Murders Most Precipitated by Robbery

The National Council on Compensation Insurance reports that about 75 percent of all murders in the workplace occur during the commission of a robbery.

While we have become somewhat used to the headline-grabbing, spectacular scene of the disgruntled employee entering his workplace and murdering coworkers, the reality is that your life is much more exposed to the garden variety robbery.

You -- or your employees -- are most at risk if your job puts you in contact with customers and where valuables and cash are accessible. Risky occupations include cashiers, security guards, and taxi drivers.
