SILVA, Maria Cristina  e  BORGES, Livia de Oliveira. Working conditions and safety climate of construction workers. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.4, pp. 407-418. ISSN 1984-6657.

This article explored how workers perceive their working conditions and aspects of the safety climate in their organization, and what the relations are between the perceptions of the two phenomena.We applied one questionnaire about working conditions and another about safety climate. The participants were 195 workers from a contracting company in Belo Horizonte. Statistical analyses were conducted on participant responses.The results showed that they perceive the work as repetitive, leading to stressful situations and exposure to natural physical changes. They are challenged in their professional capacities, and value teamwork and flexibility in defining their activities. Cluster analysis identified safety climate profiles and the absence of a consolidated safety climate. Using ANOVA we found that the factors Repetitive movements, Teamwork, Lack of job performance support, and Social and gender discrimination significantly influence the safety climate profiles. We concluded that the perception of working conditions can affect the perception of safety climate.
