Violence instigated by people committing crimes results in approximately 85% of workplace violence fatalities. Examples include robbery, shoplifting and trespassing. Workers who handle cash or work at locations where cash is present are at a higher risk of crime related violence. Examples of these types of jobs include taxi drivers, cashiers and bank employees. Some states and cities have regulations in place to help prevent violence to workers in these types of high risk jobs. One example is a New York law that requires taxicabs to have bulletproof barriers.
