Psychosocial Safety Climate and Its Implication for Work Engagement Through Cognitive Demands

Session

Psychology

Description

The objective of the present study was to investigate the role of psychosocial safety climate (PSC) and its relationship to work-related outcomes (i.e., work engagement) via working conditions such as job demands. Specifically, by using the job demands-resources (JD-R) model as a basis of the argument, the research examines how cognitive demands mediate the relationship between psychosocial safety climate and work engagement. The research predicted that PSC positively increases work engagement via enhancement of positive demands (i.e., cognitive demands). The current study utilized a cross-sectional survey approach among 392 employees in one oil and gas organization in Malaysia. To test the research hypotheses, data were analyzed using statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS), and to test the confirmatory factor analysis for each construct, data were analyzed using analysis of a moment structures (AMOS). The study revealed that PSC increased cognitive demands. Furthermore, the results supported the notion that working condition mediated the relationship between PSC and work engagement. Overall, these findings suggest that PSC plays a significant role as predictor for working conditions and work outcomes in oil and gas industry. The results may be used to help occupational health and safety practitioners, human resource practitioners and higher management within organizations to understand how PSC influences working conditions and work outcomes.
