Title What is most important for safety climate: The company belonging or the local working environment? A study from the Norwegian offshore industry
Bibliographic information Dec. 2009, Vol.47, No.10, p.1324-1331. 36 ref.
Abstract The aim of this study was to examine the relative influence of offshore local installation safety climate and employer safety policies on employees' opinions concerning occupational safety and health. Data from a safety climate survey answered by 4479 Norwegian offshore petroleum employees in 2005 were analyzed. The specific offshore installation was considered more important than the employer. Other findings are discussed.
