Abstract

This study examines the relationship between management style, working environment, and co-workers' relationships with workplace violence in Fleet Supply Depots (FSD).Data was gathered through questionnaires distributed to 155 respondents who are FSD staff from various departments in FSD. However, only 150 questionnaires (96.77 %) were returned for analysis.The data was analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 17.0. The findings showed that there was a nonsignificant difference in co-workers' relationships between male and female staff in FSD.There was a positive correlation between co-workers' relationship and management style except for working environment.It was seen that co-workers' relationships and working environment influenced the changes in workplace violence. Future studies could be extended to other factors like family violence to see its influence on workplace violence.The primary focus of this study is to provide an empirical basis that can help the management in the formulation of guidelines, and to improve working procedures to overcome any cases of workplace violence happening in FSD.
