1 in 5 full-time employed adults report they were victims of domestic violence.

Each time a women is assaulted by her partner and survives an attack, she misses an average of 7 days of work and requires $816 of medical and mental health care.

In a recent study of male batterers, 78 percent used workplace resources at least once to abuse or threaten their victim.

Workplaces that do not address domestic violence may be exposed to safety ricks and legal liabilities.

1 in 4 women have been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner, 1 in 7 men have experienced the same.

Domestic violence in the workplace costs U.S. employers between $5 and $8 billion every year due to decreased productivity and increased healthcare costs among victims.

About Safe Haven Works

Safe Haven Works is a program of Safe Haven Ministries designed to help local employers understand how to address domestic violence in their workplace. We offer resources that will help employers support their staff and reduce their risks and liability. Below are some of the ways this program can help make your workplace a safe environment.

  1. Lunch and Learn: In one hour, learn how to recognize, respond, and refer in cases of domestic violence in the workplace. Leave with resources and materials to use in your workplace (suitable for managers, human resources professionals, and supervisors).
  2. Sample Domestic Violence Policies and Procedures: Safe Haven has gathered samples from a variety of workplaces. Though we do not recommend specific policies and procedures, we can provide you with well-researched resources to assist you in your own process of creating a workplace domestic violence policy.
  3. Individual Training: Safe Haven tailors trainings for supervisors managers, and groups of employees based on the needs and goals of your workplace safety programs.
  4. Outreach and Awareness Materials: Brochures, cards, and posters help raise awareness, offer outreach, and provide basic referral information for employees who are experiencing–or responding to–domestic violence in the workplace.
