Workplace violence is a problem that can occur in any occupation and at any operational level. Each occupation
has different levels of risks depending on factors including personal factors (i.e. workers and service users),
temporal factors and location factors. In all workplaces, convenience stores are considered one of the top places
with frequent violence. Partially, this is because there are many factors different from other workplaces. Those
factors may lead to violence and crimes such as verbal harassment, physical harms, robbery, and murder. The
mentioned violence does not only have direct physical effects but also has short-term and long-term mental effects as well as economic and social effects.
