ABSTRACT:
Background and objective: One of the definitive ways to reduce occupational accidents among workers is to promote their safety culture. Aboureihan Pharmaceutical Company is one of the leading companies in the field of pharmacy in Iran. Based on the documentary evidences as well as information collected from credible sources, the following research was carried out to investigate the safety culture of the staff.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive survey was carried out among all employees (400 people) of Aboureihan Pharmaceutical Company. The study sample consisted of 135 people selected randomly from the whole statistical population. The participants’ information was obtained by the completion of demographic and safety information questionnaires. The validity and reliability coefficients of the safety culture questionnaire were confirmed by several experts. The applied statistical methods include descriptive statistics (to show frequency tables and percentages) and inferential statistics.Results: Findings showed that the safety culture in was above the average level among the company employees and the safety culture variable had a significant relationship with the place of work and average salary (α = 0.05). However, safety culture had no relationship with gender, marital status, level of education, work experience, job title, education, and age. Furthermore, the analysis of variance confirms the results of regression coefficient of determination of impact of demographic variables.
Conclusion: It can be predicted that the level of safety culture can be predicted by gender, marital status, education, education, work experience, job title, place of work, and age.ABSTRACT:
