Domino’s Doesn’t Deliver Following Employee Murder

Sept. 27, 2011
Deputies in Escambia County, Florida, are investigating the murder of Tyler John Hinkle, a 19-year-old Domino’s Pizza employee who was stabbed outside the store on Navy Boulevard in Pensacola.

Hinkle, 19, was stabbed in the chest shortly before 11 p.m. on Sept. 24, and managed to stagger into the store before he collapsed.

The Domino's where the attack occurred was closed following the fatal stabbing.

OSHA recently released a new compliance directive that offers procedures for agency staff who respond to workplace violence cases or complaints. The directive, Enforcement Procedures for Investigating or Inspecting Incidents of Workplace Violence, also establishes procedures for conducting inspections in industries such as late-night retail workplaces and health care and social service settings, which may be at a higher risk of workplace violence.

More than 3,000 people died from workplace homicide between 2006 and 2010, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Additional BLS data indicate that an average of more than 15,000 nonfatal workplace injury cases was reported annually during this time.
