Lower Accidents with Higher Safety Attitudes

The Safety Scale was administered to 161 current employees of a manufacturing company.

On the basis of company safety records, employees were classified into two groups: (1) no work-related accidents in the last five years (N = 16), and (2) two or more work-related accidents in the past three years (N = 40).

The results showed that employees with no on-the-job accidents scored significantly higher on the Safety Scale than did employees with the poorer safety histories (t = 4.45, p < .001). A significant correlation was obtained between accident history and Safety Scale scores (r (156) = .39, p < .001).
