The Safe At Work Web site is designed to assist employers in addressing the issue of domestic violence.
The statistics regarding domestic violence are staggering:
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in 2001, over 1,300 murders were committed by a spouse or intimate partners. These numbers equate to nearly four murders a day
More women are injured by their partners than by rape, auto accidents and muggings combined!
The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that intimate partners -- husbands, ex-husbands, and current and former boyfriends -- commit violent crimes against approximately 937,000 women every year.i
Over 25% of women have been victims of violence perpetrated by an intimate partner in their lifetime.ii
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, homicide is the leading cause of death for women on the job, and 20% of those murders were at the hands of their partners
