Abstract

The descriptive research design aimed to examine the relationships between personal factors, safety climate, social support, feedback and work safety behaviors. The samples were 115 professional nurses, randomly selected by multi-stage sampling technique. The research instruments were personal factors, safety climate, social support, feedback, and work safety behaviors questionnaires. Content validity and reliability were established. The Cronbach’s alpha coefficients were .83, .96, .96, and .96, respectively. The data were analyzed by using frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and Pearson’s product moment correlation.
Major findings of this study were as follows:
1. Work safety behavior of professional nurses in tertiary hospitals was at the good level ( = 4.47, SD = 0.35).
2. The relationship between personal factor which is the work unit and work safety behavior of professional nurses in tertiary hospitals was statistically significant (χ2=20.93, p< .05). The relationship between personal factor which is work experience and work safety behaviors of professional nurses in tertiary hospitals were positively statistically significant (r = .255, p<.05).
3. The relationships between safety climate, social support, feedback and work safety behavior of professional nurses in tertiary hospitals were positively statistically significant (r = .737, r = .660, and r = .926, p<.05, respectively).
