Unsafe behavior in the workplace is an important contributor to accidents. Although a few studies have examined the influence of safety-related stressors on safety behavior, no study has focused on the role of job satisfaction in the relationship between safety-related stressors and safety behaviors. This study examined the mediating effect of job satisfaction on the relationship between three types of safety-related stressors and two types of safety behavior among construction workers. We found evidence that only safety role ambiguity and conflict are significantly negatively correlated with job satisfaction. Job satisfaction has a significant positive correlation with both safety compliance and safety participation and can mediate the relationship between safety role ambiguity/conflict and both safety compliance and participation. Our results indicate that, in order to improve construction worker’ safety behaviors, managers and organizations should identify ways to reduce safety-related stressors and improve job satisfaction.
