Abstract : The role of management in establishing a safe work environment remains a topic that receives less attention in the literature than it deserves. There is little empirical evidence that validates the important role management plays in establishing a climate that sustains safe job behaviors. This paper presents a model that links management support, organizational climate, and self-reported safety outcomes.
