Workplace violence (WPV) is a serious health and safety issue. The research aim was to test the relationship between anonymity (e.g., organization size) and WPV as well as search for risk or protective factors. The results did not support the anonymity hypothesis. Instead it found that larger battalions is a protective factor (Odds Ratio [OR] = 0.30). The study found that the Junior Officer (OR = 0.32), Senior Officer (OR = 0.26), and Junior Warrant Officer (OR = 0.42), age (OR = 0.16), Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT) Percentile Score (OR = 0.59) variables were protective factors. The analysis identified Character Strengths (OR = 2.64), and Prior Crimes Involving Alcohol/Drugs (OR = 10.46) as risk factors.
