Background: Occupational incidents still account for a high percentage of causes of death and disability. A study was designed to determine the relationship between employee safe behavior and safety culture.
Methods: In this analytical study, all employees of an industrial livestock units of Tehran participated (n = 200). The data on the employee behavior was evaluated using the safety sampling technique based on the ANSI Dangerous Acts List (Modified Form). A standard questionnaire was used to assess the safety culture. Data were analyzed by the SPSS software, at the significance level of 0.05.
Results: The mean safety score of people (138) was acceptable. The rate of unsafe behaviors was 35%. The most unsafe behaviors were due to improper manual handling (83%). A reverse correlation between unsafe behavior and safety culture score (P value = 0.001) was seen.
Conclusion: The results of this study indicate that there is a significant negative reciprocal relationship between safety culture and unsafe behavior, that is, with the increase in the safety culture, the rate of unsafe behavior decreases. As a result, by promoting the level of safety culture, the rate of unsafe behavior can be reduced.
