||Individual safety performance in the construction industry: Development and validation of two short scales
||May 2011, Vol.43, No.3, p.948-954. 42 ref.
||The objective of this study was to develop a short measure of safety performance for use in the construction industry, and to explore the relationships between different components of safety performance and safety outcomes (occupational injuries and work-related pain) within the construction context. It was conducted by means of two field studies. In the first, comprehensive measures of safety compliance and safety participation were shortened and modified to be appropriate for use in construction. Evidence of reliability and validity is provided. Both safety compliance and safety participation were negatively related to occupational injuries, yet these two correlations were not statistically different. In the second study, relationships between these two components of safety performance and work-related pain frequency were investigated. Safety compliance had a stronger negative relationship with pain than safety participation. Implications of these and other findings are discussed.
