Abstract

The purpose of the current study is to design a reliable and valid safety climate scale for the trucking industry. The scale has the following innovations: (a) industry-specific content regarding competing demands and design indicators tailored specifically to the trucking industry as well as general items across industries; (b) a multi-level approach affording individual respondents the opportunity to assess their perceptions of how immediate supervisors and higher level managers would react to specific safety climate issues - extending the multi-level approach to the lone-worker situation. Findings and implications are discussed.
