Safety Climate and Construction Workers’ Compliance on the Use of Personal Protective Equipment in Construction Project Jakarta
Background: One of the major factors that causing injuries on construction site workers is lack of workers’ compliance on Basic Construction Safety Rules, particularly in the regulatory compliance with the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). An individual perception of workplace safety management, which includes policy, procedure and practice that can potentially influence the individual safety behavior at the workplace is called safety climate. This study aimed to examine the relationship between safety climate and construction workers’ and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Method: Participants of this research were 185 construction workers at Taman Sari Hive Office Park, Jakarta. Data were obtained using purposive sampling technique. We used Safety Climate Scale and Compliance with the Use of PPE Scale to collect the data. Results: Simple regression analysis showed that safety climate was positively associated with compliance with the use of PPE (r = .63; p < .001). Conclusion: Positive safety climate is likely to lead to higher compliance with the use of PPE. Safety climate accounted for 40% of the variance in compliance with the use of PPE. Suggestion for future research was the use of different antecedent variables to predict compliance with the use of PPE.
