Do you feel safe at your workplace?

Think your day at the office was tough? Count your blessings you weren’t among the hostages at Discovery Channel’s headquarters or a crew member on board Mariner Energy’s sunken oil platform this week. Or worse, among those who worked with Omar Thornton at the Connecticut beverage distributorship last month.

Most people will likely never have to deal with traumatic events such as those at work. Although they remain terrifying reminders of what can happen, often without warning and in spite of better training, tighter security and more rigid safety protocols, the majority of us probably still feel safe at work.

What’s the most frightening thing that’s ever happened at your office? Do you feel like your company does enough to protect its employees? Has news coverage of workplace incidents impacted your decision to work somewhere or pursue a career in a certain industry?
