Safety compliance behaviours of workers play a critical role in decreasing work-related accidents, especially if there is a strong reliance on manpower in their factories (Amponsah-Tawaih and Adu 2016; Fugas, Silva and Meliá 2012). Three studies were conducted with the purpose of exploring the dimensions of production workers’ perceptions of managerial attitudes toward occupational health and safety (Study 1), understanding the association among these attitudes and perceived risk of injuries, job satisfaction and the use of protective equipment by production workers (Study 2), and finally testing those relationships for direct supervisors of production workers (Study 3).
