Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Safety climate research has primarily focused on the examination of organizational factors such as communication and policy development and dissemination. Far less attention has been paid to the role of technical systems, tools and work processes on workers' perceptions of an organizations commitment to maintaining a safe workplace. This presentation provides a description of safety climate as a sociotechnical phenomenon, one in which perceptions of social/organizational processes and technical capabilities and affordances are critical determinants.
