Background and Purpose: Researchers have mentioned that perceived organizational support

for safety may predict occupational accidents and psychological distresses in the workplace. The

present study examined the degree of perceived organizational support for safety related to

injuries reporting rate and its dimensions among workers’ Isfahan Steel Company.

Materials and Methods: A self-administered anonymous was distributed to 189 workers. The

survey included demographic factors, injuries reporting rate and its components (physical

symptoms, psychological symptoms and accidents) and perceived organizational support for

safety. The data were analyzed using Multivariate and correlation techniques.

Results: The results showed that: (1) there were significant correlations between perceived

organizational support with injuries reporting rate and its’ dimensions namely physical and

psychological symptoms (P < 0.050); (2) There was not a significant relationship between

perceived organizational support and accidents (P > 0.050); (3) Multivariate analysis indicated

that perceived organizational support significantly predicted respectively about 14, 13 and 10

percent of the variance of variables of injuries reporting rate, physical symptoms and

psychological symptoms (P < 0.050).

Conclusion: Improving employees’ perception of support can be important to prevent the

development of job injuries and to promote employees’ safety and well-being.
