The purpose of this study was to describe the magnitude and costs of workplace assaults to a high-risk group – teachers within a large urban school system. Using an occupational, ecological framework, the study aims include: 1) to describe the frequency, nature, cost, and outcome of injuries associated with teacher assaults; 2) to identify contributing factors in terms of teacher, school, and community characteristics; and 3) to identify predictors of lost work time among teachers assaulted on the job. The sample consists of all cases of intentional assault that occurred to teachers from July 1997 to June 2000 (n~350). Data sources include internal reports, police, and health department records. The data collection instrument achieved acceptable inter-rater reliability. Analysis procedures will include analysis of variance, chi-square analysis, and logistic regression. Results of this study will increase knowledge about contributing factors and the nature of injuries in an understudied population and provide initial data about claim costs. Knowledge gained from this study will serve as a basis to develop a preventive intervention program. Additional implications will be discussed.
