Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the effect of safety culture in the military organization on safety behavior and to verify the mediating effect of safety leadership in this process. The research subjects collected data by classifying the military class and the military class, and the analysis resulted by applying the cross-over analysis model. As a measuring tool, a safety climate scale was used to measure safety culture, and a scale divided into safety knowledge and safety communication was used to measure safety leadership. As a result of analysis, there was no difference in the safety culture due to the difference between the military rank and military occupational specialty in the military organization. In terms of military rank, most of the commanders showed higher level of safety leadership than soldiers, and there was no difference on safety culture. However, the military occupational specialty was functioning as a variable to control the influence of the military rank on safety climate and safety communication. As a result, the influence of safety culture on safety behavior was significant, and it was verified that safety knowledge and safety communication function as mediaters, and the dual perfect mediation model was verified. Based on these results, a strategic education program or content development point suitable for redinforcing the safety culture of military organizations was presented.
