Abstract

This study examines the direct relationship between employee’s conscientiousness, safety commitment, employee competency, perceived organizational support and safety behavior. A total of 300 questionnaires were distributed to participants who had agreed to participate in this study. However, only 150 questionnaire were returned and usable for further analyses. Hypotheses for direct effect were tested using multiple regression analyses. Results showed that only employee’s conscientiousness, safety commitment, and perceived organizational support were significantly positively associated with safety behavior. Implications of the findings, potential limitations, and directions for future research are discussed
