Safety climate is defined as employees‘ shared perceptions regarding safety within their work organization. This study attempted to investigate safety climate among nurses in Hospital Selayang as well as demographic factors. There were five independent variables taken from demographic information: age, marital status, working department, work position and year of service. A total of 175 sets of questionnaires were distributed among nurses from four departments. Quantitative data was analyzed using SPSS software version 22. The result shows nurses‘ safety climate is quite high with an overall mean score of 5.478 (7- Likert scales from strongly disagree to strongly agree), means the average answer of respondents is in
between slightly agree and agree. On the other hand, there were no significant differences between safety climate with age, marital status, working department, work position and year of service. Therefore, if the hospital wishes to improve the safety climate among their nurses, they need to include all nurses without focusing on certain categories in order to improve their safety climate. Based on the research findings it is recommended that there is a need for a well-structured continuing education programme for all nurses that aim to increase their competence to enable them to provide high quality and clinically safe care.
