Abstract

Safety climate as used in this research was first formally defined by Zohar (1980) through a research study which encompassed 20 Israeli factories across a variety of industries as “a summary of molar perceptions that employees share about their work environment” (pg 96). The term safety climate has been conceptualized as employees’ shared perceptions of how safety practices, policies, and procedures are implemented and prioritized, compared to other priorities such as productivity (Smith et al., 2005). Safety climate can further be conceptualized as a view of the state of safety in the organization at a discrete point in time, which may change over time (Cheyne et al., 1998; Cooper and Phillips, 2004; Neal, Griffin, and Hart, 2000; Guldenmund, 2000; Zohar, 1980, 2000, 2002a, 2002b).
