To date, little research has been done in regard to the stressor-strain relationship between job insecurity and employee safety outcomes. The aim of the present study was to investigate this link further while incorporating the moderator of employee safety climate and addressing the gaps in the literature by utilizing non-self-report data in addition to the self-report data. Data was obtained for a 12-month time period from five locations within the same manufacturing facility and analyzed at the individual level in regard to self-report data and at the group level for non-self-report data. Results indicate mixed support in regard to individual level data and suggest a mixed model approach in regard to safety outcomes. Although further investigation is needed in regard to the job insecurity-employee safety outcomes relationship and other potential moderators to this relationship, results do indicate that safety climate may still play an important role within organizations.
