Abstract This document presents the results of a survey on violence carried out during 2004 in four cities in Columbia. It analyses the various forms of violence in the workplace (physical assault, verbal aggression, threats, sexual harassment and bullying), together with their consequences in four sectors of activity: private investigation and security services, road and urban transport, financial services and health care services. It also proposes an epidemiological monitoring protocol aimed at preventing violence in occupational settings.
