In process industries as petrochemical industries, many researcher stated levels of safety culture are key factors to affect industrial accidents.<b> </b>However, definitions of safety culture are implicit, and there are many issues to measure safety culture.<b> </b>We developed 110 item questionnaire based on 8 axis model of safety culture. This questionnaire responded by 9,647 employees from 86 Japanese plants, which included thermal power plants, oil refineries, chemical plant and rubber plants.<b> </b>As a result, the first principal component score, which could be used as a composite indicator of safety(Safety Culture Index), showed a negative correlation with the incidence of occupational and process accidents. Also, result of this study indicates this assessment has the possibility to streamline plants safety measure planning.
