Research on safety climate has developed in the nineteens, given its important role form a scientific and an applied point of view, because it seems to be a leading indicator of safety performance. The present study offers an overview on safety climate, highlighting issues concerning its definition and measurement.
Keywords: Safety Climate, safety at work, measurement instruments, climate agents, coworker role on safety
