Safety Climate : a study of the differences between management and employees' perception of safety (English)
Abstract [sv]

Säkerheten i en organisation bygger inte enbart på säker utrustning och kvalitetssäkrade processer utan även på samspelet mellan människor (Törner, 2008). Ett gott säkerhetsklimat har en positiv inverkan på säkerheten och har visat sig minska antalet olyckor. Syftet med föreliggande studie har varit att med en kvantitativ ansats försöka ta reda på om det finns skillnader i uppfattning av säkerhetsklimat mellan medarbetare och ledning i en industriell verksamhet. Studien innefattar en enkätundersökning med 31 deltagare på tillverkningsindustrier i Västsverige i åldrarna 22-65 där 3 var kvinnor och 28 var män. För att nå ut till deltagarna användes en webbenkät baserad på NOSACQ-50 (Nordic Safety Climate Questionnaire) som mäter sju dimensioner av säkerhetsklimat. Resultatet visade att säkerhetsklimatet hade en god nivå både hos ledning och medarbetare. De båda grupperna skiljde sig inte åt i hur de uppfattade säkerhetsarbetet. Resultatet visade också att det fanns samband mellan dimensionerna i NOSACQ-50. Trots att inga signifikanta skillnader mellan ledning och medarbetare upptäcktes belyser studien vikten av att studera säkerhetsklimat ur flera perspektiv. Det kan finnas vinster i att betrakta säkerhetsklimatet ur ett grupperspektiv då detta kan generera en djupare förståelse för säkerhetsklimatet som helhet och hur organisationer kan uppnå ett mer sammanhängande säkerhetsklimat

Abstract [en]

The safety of an organization is based not only on safe equipment and quality assurance processes, but also on the interaction between people (Törner, 2008). A good safety climate has a positive impact on safety and has been shown to reduce accidents. The aim of the present study was to find out if there are differences in safety climate between employees and management in an industrial enterprise with a quantitative approach. The study includes a survey with 31 participants in manufacturing industries in western Sweden between the ages of 22-65 of whom 3 were women and 28 were men. To reach out to the participants a web survey based on NOSACQ-50 (Nordic Safety Climate Questionnaire) was used, which measures seven dimensions of safe climate. The results showed that safety climate was at a good level for both management and employees. However, the two groups did not differ in how they perceived safety. The result also showed that there were correlations between the dimensions of NOSACQ-50. Although no significant differences between management and employees were discovered, the study highlights the importance of studying safety climate from several perspectives. There may be benefits in considering safety climate from a group perspective as this may generate a deeper understanding of safety climate as a whole, and how organizations can achieve a more coherent safety climate
