||Workplace violence, particularly when it involves members of the same organization, has repercussions on worker's safety and health. Although the Province of Quebec recently set up a legislative framework to counter this phenomenon, little is known about the usefulness and effectiveness of the means of prevention. This project was based on a participatory process in the workplace, and was systematically evaluated using a well-known model. It involved determining, by employees and their supervisors, the organizational constraints leading to violence and the solutions to eliminate and prevent its occurrence. It was carried out among prison service officers, by means of questionnaires, interviews and focus groups. Findings are discussed.
