Abstract

The Minnesota Department of Transportation strives to provide a safe and respectful workplace. Wiens (2011) notes that “Government makes up 18 percent of the U.S. workforce, according to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service; yet, 30 percent of victims of workplace violence are federal, state or local government employees”(p. 5). District 7 of the Minnesota Department of Transportation has identified issues of ongoing concern that include: communication problems, gender and generational differences, and potential union based seniority conflicts resulting in perceived intimidation and interpersonal conflict. This Capstone project was an effort to develop a fidelity checklist to ensure that state legislated mandates for violence prevention and intervention are implemented as designed by the program developers. In addition, evidence-based best practice recommendations from various fields of practice were examined to assess potential gaps in content, implementation, and evolution of intervention planning.
