Violence at work: findings from 2013/14 Crime Survey for England and Wales

Statistics on work related violence, threats and physical assault.



These statistics come from the 2013/14 Crime Survey for England and Wales (CSEW), published on the Health and Safety Executive website.

The CSEW measures respondents’ experiences of crime-related incidents and classifies these into offence types (including physical assaults and threats). It also collects detailed information about the nature of the victimisation.

The CSEW defines violence at work on the basis of type of offence (assaults or threats), what the victim was doing at the time of the incident (at work or working), and the relationship between victim and offender (domestic violence is excluded).
