Summary of "The Relationship Between Physical Work Hazards and Employee Withdrawal: The Moderating Role of Safety Compliance."

We examined the relationship between physical work hazards and employee withdrawal among a sample of healthcare employees wherein compliance was hypothesized to moderate the relationship between physical work hazards and withdrawal. Healthcare workers (N = 162) completed an online questionnaire assessing physical work hazards, withdrawal, and indicators of workplace safety. Safety compliance moderated the relationship between patient aggression and withdrawal. Interaction plots revealed that for all significant moderations, the relationship between physical work hazards and withdrawal was weaker for those who reported high levels of compliance. Results shed initial light on the benefits of fostering safety compliance in healthcare contexts, which can contain exposure to physical work hazards.
