Understanding how job position affects perceptions of safety culture is important in utilizing safety culture survey results, and performing safety culture audits at a plant. In this study, we use two independently finished safety culture surveys (surveys obtained from HSE department managers and surveys obtained from the workforce). We performed two analyses to investigate this issue.( 1) We analyzed relationships between two safety culture surveys for large scale process plants that were finished independently( 23 plants responded both surveys),( 2) We compared safety culture survey results obtained from the workforce for the management to that for the workers( 32 plants responded). The analysis results are as follows(. i) Discrepancy between the<b> </b>managements and workers is larger on responses to questionnaire items belonging to "Bases for Organizational Culture." ( ii) Questionnaire items are categorized into "Items with significant positive correlation between responses from the management and the<b> </b>workers" and "Items without correlation between responses from the management and workers." 3) Some questionnaire items in the survey for HSE department managers are negatively correlated with the survey results for the workforce.
