Abstract and Keywords

Safety is a growing area of study for organizational scholars and is increasingly becoming more paramount for organizations. In this chapter we present a broad review of occupational safety with particular attention paid to identifying characteristics of individual employees and contextual features that predict safety. This review culminates by proposing that scholars and practitioners need to focus on both the individual employee and the contextual environment in which he or she works to create an overall safety-conscious workforce.

Keywords: safety, accidents, injuries, health, safety performance
