||Safety-culture in a Norwegian shipping company
||2005, Vol.36, No.5, p.441-458. Illus. 73 ref.
||Although there has been considerable interest in safety culture and safety climate in many industries, little attention has been given to safety culture in shipping. Using both original items and items from published research on safety culture, safety climate, and quality and management style, a 40-item safety culture questionnaire was developed and distributed to sailors onboard 20 vessels and to officers attending a safety seminar. A total of 349 questionnaires were collected (total response rate, 60%). Analysis of results confirmed previous research, showing differences in the perception of safety issues across nationalities, occupations and vessels.
