Abstract: 

Among all deathful and destructive factors, the work related accidents are of special importance. The principles of accident prevention have been changed after the mid 20th century based on refusing and decreasing the human unsafe acts. The most important step in accident prevention is recognition of accident occurrence reasons, so, it is necessary to evaluate the labors' unsafe acts that are the main causes of accident.
In this study, the workers' unsafe acts in Godazan factory were evaluated by safety behavior sampling method, observation and interview in 2000. After description of unsafe acts, the sample size was 573 cases based on results of pilot study and sampling accuracy to 5% and confidence level to 95%. Using questionnaires, variables related to the workers were collected.
The results showed that 59.2% of workers acts are unsafe. The most important unsafe acts are not using personal protective equipment with 50% out of total unsafe acts. The results showed a significant difference between unsafe acts and age, number of family members (p 0.01) ,education and former accident(p 0.05).
The findings of the study showed that most of workers' acts in Godazan foundry were unsafe. Since, unsafe acts are the main causes of accidents, the results emphasize on decreasing the unsafe acts and recommend behaving according to safety principles.
