  Background and aims

  Today, the reduction of unsafe work behavior is an accepted principle. Unsafe behaviors at work are said to be the main cause of work accidents. Therefore, careful  attention toward unsafe work behavior is one of the main factors for eliminating the causes of injuries and damages which has been taken into consideration in recent years.Also, due to the high rate of accidents in foundry industries the present research has been conducted to reduce unsafe  work behaviors through an appropriate method.

  Methods

  The present study is of analytical interventional. The subject investigated in this study is one of foundry industries. Sample size was determined. In order to gather data, the methods of observation, interview and checklist were used. The five-year-accident record of the

  company was analyzed.Data analysis was done by means of spss10.

  Results

  In the present study, Pearson Correlation test indicates that there is no relationship  between safety performance score before and after training and the age of workers. (r=0.6 Pvalue=  0.639) Pearson correlation test also demonstrated that there is a linear relationship between  safety performance score and work experience. In other words, the more work experience, the  more safety performance (r=0.25 P-value=0.03). Pearson correlation test indicates that there is  no relationship between safety performance score and educational level. (r=0.12 P-value=0.29)

  Conclusion

  The present study indicated that with the reduction of unsafe work behavior  accidents declined significantly. This research also resulted in the reduction of unsafe work  behaviors, lost workdays as well as work accidents.
