Albuquerque, New Mexico is one of the latest places to address workplace violence with regard to city workers. I lived for many years in New Mexico and know that while most people are law abiding, at certain times it can be a violent place. Just like anywhere else I guess.
But when fellow employees are being abusive or physically attacking each other on the job, it’s time to get a program in action. Albuquerque seems to be taking appropriate measures in an attempt to get out in front of the workplace violence problem.
According to an article on KOB.com….”Those changes include workplace violence training, or a refresher course, for supervisors and managers, along with the Parks and Rec Department implementing mandatory documentation of all workplace violence incidents.”
I have written quite a bit about workplace violence now. Once such recent story is entitled, New Zealand Watch Group Believes Workplace Violence Estimates Too Low. If that applies to New Zealand, it would be reasonable to project the workplace violence statistics for the United States are also being under reported.
