Background and Aim: Safety is one of the important subjects in the pre-hospital settings. Determination and evaluation of safety attitudes of the emergency staff is the first step toward improving the safety of the staff and patients. In this study, we investigated safety attitudes and the factors affecting safety such as error and accident history, during mission, in the last year, in the staff of emergency medical services in Sanandaj.
Material and Methods: This was a cross-sectional descriptive study. We used census method. Study population included personnel of emergency medical services (72 people). We used a questionnaire for data collection. SPSS version 20 software was used for data analysis. Pearson correlation coefficient, Spearman correlation coefficient and chi-square test were used to determine the relationship between the variables and the safety attitudes.
Results: Based on the findings of this study, the safety attitudes of the emergency medical staff were significantly at a low level (mean: 3.11, p=±0/435). six dimensions of safety attitudes, including the cooperative atmosphere in the organization, safety climate in the organization, perceptual management, and job status had significant relationship with demographic characteristics. Job satisfaction criteria and stress recognition showed no significant relationship with demographic characteristics.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that the safety attitudes of the emergency medical staff towards safety were significantly at a low level.Therefore education in order to improve the attitudes of the emergency medical staff is necessary. We recommend inclusion of safety attitudes conceot in educational programs for emergency medical staff.
