Background and Objective: A proper safety culture is one of the important factors that ensure a healthy and safe work environment. In order to ensure safety performance in the workplace, healthcare departments are required to establish safety rules and procedures and ensure they are applied throughout the organization. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the safety culture among healthcare workers (HCWs) in Borujerd.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional-analytical study was conducted on 452 HCWs in Boroujerd (1400-1401). Study subjects were selected by random stratified sampling method. The standard safety culture questionnaire was used to assess safety culture. The linear regression was used in SPSS (version 22) to identify factors related to safety culture.
Results: The mean age of the study sub­jects was 33.97±5.69 years, and most of them were female (58%). The mean score of safety culture was 172.64±23.53; moreover, 7.1% and 92.9% of sub­jects had a negative and positive safety culture, respectively. Linear regression analysis demonstrated that the overall score of safety culture decreases with an increase in age. The overall score of safety culture in the occupational group of discharge and income and guards was lower than in the radiography group, and it was higher in participants with illness and accident history than in those without illness and accident history.
Conclusion: As evidenced by the obtained results, the safety culture in the HCWs in this study was at a high level. The variables of age, history of accidents, illness, and occupation are the factors influencing the safety culture score.
