||An empirical investigation of safety climate in container terminal operations
||2005, Vol. 36, No. 3, p. 297-308. Illus. 47 ref.
||This study investigated the crucial dimensions of safety climate in a container terminal in Taiwan and classified workers into various groups according to their safety perceptions. Seven safety climate dimensions were identified: supervisor safety; job safety; co-worker safety; safety management; safety training; safety rules and special safety training; job pressure. Cluster analysis revealed that that safety training and management oriented terminal operators have the best safety performance, followed by safety management oriented terminal operators, job safety and supervisor safety oriented terminal operators, and co-worker safety oriented terminal operators. Theoretical and practical implications of the research findings are discussed.
