ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the psychological contract measure for health and safety at work. The study aimed to discover whether employees with a positive psychological contract would trust line managers more with respect to health and safety, would perceive a better safety climate, and be less likely to have experienced a near-miss or incident at work than employees with a negative psychological contract. The main finding was that there were significant positive relationships between the psychological contract, trust and safety climate measures.
