The OSHA General Duty Clause requires businesses to maintain a safe workplace and a safe place for customers & clients. If violence occurs without your company previously attempting to improve safety provides grounds for OSHA fines up to $250,000 and for civil lawsuits that could cost millions.
It is not necessary to implement all possible improvements at once. They can be scheduled over a year or more depending on cost. However, a safety & security inspection needs to be done once per year and training should be done at least once per year.
