Method: Seven safety motivation questionnaire items were developed based on a theoretical model with three forms of motivation for safety compliance/participation: normative, social and calculated motivations. The items were tested on a total of 550 workers from 20 different small, medium and large manufacturing enterprises.
Results: Ranking patterns of the seven items were similar across all 20 enterprises. Workers were primarily motivated due to normative safety motivations and only secondarily due to social and calculated motivations. In all enterprises the primary motivations for safety compliance/motivation were that it ‘contributed to the prevention of accidents and injuries’, and because it was a ‘natural part’ of their work. Social motivations for safety compliance/participation such as ‘gaining respect from colleagues’ and ‘avoiding negative remarks from a leader/colleague’ were of less importance.
Interview, observational and additional questionnaire data clarify these results.
Conclusion: The article provides insight into ‘what’ actually motivates workers to comply/participate in safety and possible differences between attitudes and actions.
