Abstract:

This study aimed to study the current safety climate and determine the relationship between safety climate and influencing factors in one of the largest Hydro Power Plant in Thailand. Method: This cross-sectional research recruited 336 employees to complete the Safety Climate questionnaires, recommended by the UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE), to measure 9 dimensions of organizational safety climate. Results: The results revealed that average score of Personal Priorities and Need for Safety were highest (accounted for 7.96 out of 10), whereas the average score of the Safety Rules and Procedures was lowest (accounted for 5.62). Conclusion: The results illustrated that the influencing factors were 1) the job and condition of employment were significantly influencing 7 dimensions at 0.05 level of confidence (p-value <0.05) (2) the factor of age was significantly influencing 3 dimensions at 0.05 level of confidence (p-value <0.05). Limitation: This research was carried out in limited period of time and therefore, follow-up study should be carried out, particularly when any change introduced to the organizational contexts or any intervention applied to existing safety management system, in order to maintain and improve organizational safety culture.
