Abstract

Author(s): Nihan YAVUZ Altan DO?AN

The aim of this study is to determine whether the perceptions of safety climates differ according to hazard classes. A total of 223 participants from three selected workplaces representing different hazard classes were reached and analyzed. According to the results of the analyzes, the perception of the safety climate is significantly different according to the hazard classes. Participants in the workplaces belonging to the less dangerous class perceived their workplace as safer. As the danger class increases (very dangerous class) it has been determined that employees perceive their workplaces less secure. In addition, the perception of safety climate differs significantly from gender and position in the firm. The safety climate of the female employees was higher than the perceptions of the male employees. The safety climate of the managers was higher than the perceptions of the employees. In the education variable; the perceptions of secondary school and associate degree graduates have higher safety climate perceptions. Finally, in the age variable; employees under 30 years of age had the highest perception of safety climate.
