The authors measured perceptions of safety climate, motivation, and behavior at 2 time points and linked them to prior and subsequent levels of accidents over a 5-year period. A series of analyses examined the effects of top-down and bottom-up processes operating simultaneously over time. In terms of top-down effects, average levels of safety climate within groups at 1 point in time predicted subsequent changes in individual safety motivation. Individual safety motivation, in turn, was…

Multilevel Models in the Explanation of the Relationship between Safety Climate and Safe Behavior

The results suggest that, while individual evaluations of safety issues are important, there is also a role for the fostering of collective safety climates in encouraging safe behaviors and therefore reducing accidents.

Workplace safety: a meta-analysis of the roles of person and situation factors.

This study quantitatively integrates the safety literature by meta-analytically examining person- and situation-based antecedents of safety performance behaviors and safety outcomes (i.e., accidents and injuries).

A CROSS-LEVEL INVESTIGATION OF FACTORS INFLUENCING UNSAFE BEHAVIORS AND ACCIDENTS

Several recent reviews of industrial accidents have given increased attention to the role of organizational factors as antecedents to the accident sequence. In the current study, three group-level

A group-level model of safety climate, related to supervisory safety practices rather than to company policies and procedures, is presented to supplement the available organization- level model and establishes an empirical link between safety climate perceptions and objective injury data.

Perceptions of safety at work: a framework for linking safety climate to safety performance, knowledge, and motivation.

The results support conceptualizing safety climate as an antecedent to safety performance in organizations and two studies supported application of the framework to employee perceptions of safety in the workplace.

Results indicate that employees who report high perceptions of job insecurity exhibit decreased safety motivation and compliance, which in turn is related to higher levels of workplace injuries and accidents.
