Recent studies provide evidence that high quality management is a determinant for a positive safety climate, but the majority of these studies are predominantly based on small samples from individual industries. The purpose of this paper is to scrutinize the association between transactional and transformational leadership and safety climate, and to explore how safety climate is affected by a number of socio-demographic factors and within different industries and company sizes. The analyses are based on data from a recent Danish work environment cross-sectional study including 3681 employees from a wide range of industries and who report that safety climate is relevant for their job.
