Safety Climate, Proactive Personality And Safety Behaviour: A Study Among Fuel Station Attendants In Accra.

ABSTRACT The downstream oil and gas sector is growing at an increasing rate in Ghana. This growth has come with a cost regarding public safety. Various gas explosions have occurred in Ghana leading to injuries, loss of life, and destruction of properties. However, there is little research investigating this problem. The study investigated the interaction between safety climate perception and safety behaviour among fuel station attendants. A self-report survey was used in collecting data from 206 fuel station attendants. Hierarchical linear regression was used to analyse the data. Results showed that safety climate perception had a positive relationship with safety behaviour. There was a positive relationship between proactive personality and safety behaviour. Proactive personality did not moderate the relationship between safety climate and safety behaviour. Female fuel attendants did not have better safety behaviour than their male colleagues. Fuel station attendants with higher educational level did not have better safety behaviour than fuel station attendants with lower educational level. Findings of the study indicate that managers and supervisors of fuel stations should consider personality profiling of prospective fuel station attendants. Managers must provide better safety equipment and necessary safety strategies in various fuel stations in order to influence the safety climate of fuel station attendants positively.
