A Demands–Resources View of Safety Climate in Military Aviation

A Demands–Resources View of Safety Climate in Military Aviation Safety climate surveys have been criticized because theylack an explicit theoretical basis. We present validation data for a safetyclimate survey based on the job demands–resources (JD-R) theory anddesigned for use in a military aviation context. We tested measurement andstructural models based on JD-R theory across three datasets collected in 2014(N = 8,799), 2015 (N = 8,910), and 2016(N = 10,236). The measurement model fitted the data acrossthe three administrations, reliability estimates were satisfactory for allscales, and predictions based on JD-R theory were realized. The theory-basedinstrument can help to explain variance in safety outcomes through clearlyarticulated direct, indirect, and moderated pathways that have the potential toenrich reports on safety climate. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

Safety climate surveys have been criticized because theylack an explicit theoretical basis. We present validation data for a safetyclimate survey based on the job demands–resources (JD-R) theory anddesigned for use in a military aviation context. We tested measurement andstructural models based on JD-R theory across three datasets collected in 2014(N = 8,799), 2015 (N = 8,910), and 2016(N = 10,236). The measurement model fitted the data acrossthe three administrations, reliability estimates were satisfactory for allscales, and predictions based on JD-R theory were realized. The theory-basedinstrument can help to explain variance in safety outcomes through clearlyarticulated direct, indirect, and moderated pathways that have the potential toenrich reports on safety climate.
