Abstract

The article presents the problem of evaluation of safety climate in a production facility. It shows selected, most popular and available tools for measuring its level. On the basis of that there has been presented author's questionnaire for evaluation of safety climate level which includes, among other, the following issues: I. Knowledge of work safety, II. Values and beliefs regarding work conditions, III. Clear communication regarding health and safety at work, IV. Attitudes towards health and safety services - personal influence on health and safety at work, V. Superiors’ approach to health and safety problems, VI. Evaluation of training in the area of health and safety, VII. Stress resilience, VIII. Motivation to safe behavior, IX. Making use of cultural offer. To each of the issues there have been assigned five-question modules, to achieve clarity and legibility of the questionnaire. There has also been used five-point Likert scale. To confirm the validity of the above assumptions there has been carried out a piloting research which allowed to simplify and modify the questionnaire. The obtained results can be referred to age, education and job experience of workers. The final result is a collective comparison in a form of a radar chart, which shows general level of safety climate in the analyzed production facility, and allows for an indicator approach to the problem.
