Introduction: Safety training, as one of the safety interventions, is believed to be an antecedent of safety climate and safety performance improvement within organizations. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of training and technical interventions to provide healthy safety climate in the workplace.
Materials and Methods: In this interventional study, 480 workers of different job groups in construction Company were entered the study. Data were collected using demographic, safety climate and safety performance questionnaires. Questionnaires were completed at three stages including before the intervention, one month after the first intervention and one month after the second intervention (four months after the first intervention). Data were analyzed by paired t-test, one-way analysis of variance and bonferroni test using SPSS23 software.
Results: The findings of this study revealed that there was a significant improvement in all safety training impact subscales indicating that employees promoted their safety performance. The findings of this study also revealed significant improvements in the safety climate, indicating that the training role has been viewed as crucial in improving and supporting employees’ and organization’s safety.
Conclusion: Overall, the current study has gone some way towards enhancing our understanding of safety training impacts and its influence on safety climate, particularly with regard to the improvement of safety performance. The need for further research to investigate the effectiveness of specific safety training intervention with the addition of motivational factors, and its relation to safety climate over a period of time in various industries, remain crucial.
