Abstract: Introduction
Universities and colleges serve to be institutions of education excellence; however, problems in the areas of occupational safety may undermine such goals. Occupational safety must be the concern of every employee in the organization, regardless of job position. Safety climate surveys have been suggested as important tools for measuring the effectiveness and improvement direction of safety programs. Thus, this study aims to investigate the influence of organizational and individual factors on safety climate in university and college laboratories.
Employees at 100 universities and colleges in Taiwan were mailed a self-administered questionnaire survey; the response rate was 78%.
Multivariate analysis of variance revealed that organizational category of ownership, the presence of a safety manager and safety committee, gender, age, title, accident experience, and safety training significantly affected the climate. Among them, accident experience and safety training affected the climate with practical significance.
The authors recommend that managers should address important factors affecting safety issues and then create a positive climate by enforcing continuous improvements.
