Abstract

Safety is of critical importance in many industries. One of the more dangerous environments in industry, and the military, is air freight handling, where the fatal injury rate has consistently been higher than the national average. Nonetheless, peer-reviewed safety research that is focused on air freight handling is practically non-existent. Therefore, research that helps academicians and managers better understand safety climate and its potential influence on employee attitudes and behaviors is vitally important. To address these concerns, we develop and validate an air freight handling-specific safety climate scale capable of capturing employees' safety climate perceptions at the organization and group levels. We also found that, in general, measurement scale dimensions in this context are like those in other high-risk, transportation-related contexts, and that the nomological network may be converging on a cross-context set of safety climate dimensions. The resultant scale can be used to investigate safety climate's relationship with various employee attitudes, safety and operational behaviors in this high-risk environment.
