Abstract: 

Introduction: Due to increase of accident work in Iranian women workers, safety attitude is an important factor at work and it should be considered. The aim of this study was to determine correlation between demographic characteristics and safety attitude of women workers in food factories.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive-correlation study, 171 woman workers were selected by multiphase sampling. Data was collected by 2-part questionnaire of demographic characteristics and “Safety Attitude to Work Questionnaire”. Validity of the questionnaires was evaluated by CVI (92.10) and CVR (91.11). In addition, face and reliability were determined by internal consistency (
a=0.86) and test-retest (r=0.94)).
Findings: Result showed that most of the samples had positive safety attitude (81.3 %). In addition, results showed they also indicated that there is a significant correlation between marriage and number of children with safety attitude to work (P>0.01). Contrary, there was a negative correlation between salary and work experiences with safety attitude (P>0.05). Other demographic characteristics did not have a significant relationship with safety attitude (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Due to correlation between some demographic characteristics and safety attitude of women workers, further study is suggested for future research.
