The Nordic Safety Climate Questionnaire (NOSACQ-50) was used to assess the safety climate among workers of the different organizational departments. Out of 252, 142 workers were selected by simple random sampling. Descriptive and analytical statistics were used to analyze the data. The instrument's internal consistency was also calculated by calculating Richardson's coefficient of coefficient 0.942.coefficients were used for analytical analysis. Analyzes were performed in SPSS software version 19 with a significance level of 5%.
Results: The reliability coefficient of the whole questionnaire was calculated 0.95 using Cronbach's alpha test. The safety climate score was higher than two in all domains. Safety climate score was significantly correlated with work area and shift type. The highest score of safety climate was in the crusher section as well as in day shift work. There was no significant relationship between safety climate score and other variables of the study.
Conclusion: The safety atmosphere score is affected by the day shift and the workplace section. Therefore, it is suggested to modify the job plan and work shifts to improve the prevailing safety climate.
