Abstract

The purpose of the current study is to design reliable and valid safety climate scales for the utility/electric power industry. The scales have the following innovations: (a) industry-specific content regarding competing demands and design indicators tailored specifically to the utility/electric power industry in addition to general items across industries and (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 remote-worker situation. Findings and implications are discussed.
