Abstract: 

Background: Developing strategies for dealing with stressful and critical situations are very important. In traumatic conditions, firstly people must understand that preventive measures can be beneficial to deal with in this situation (reducing perception of safety helplessness); secondly, they have the expertise and skill to deal with these conditions (increasing perception of safety self-efficacy). This research was carried out to evaluate effectiveness of safety trainings on employees’ perceived safety self-efficacy and helplessness.
Methods: About 204 individuals (101 in experimental group and 103 ones in control group) completed the perceived safety self-efficiency and perceived safety helplessness scales of Cohen, Kamarck & Mermelstein (1983) before a 4-hour safety training course in Isfahan Steel Company. Only the experimental group participated in this training course. This questionnaire almost implemented approximately 30 days after training for both groups. The results were compared using descriptive indexes and covariance.
Findings: Comparison between two groups showed that safety trainings had a significant effect on reducing the perceived safety helplessness of employees; but had no significant effect on perceived safety self-efficacy improvement.
Conclusion: The results of this research maintain the importance of safety trainings evaluation and its effectiveness determination on variables related to the occupational accidents.
