This study empirically investigates the effects of safety managementon safety performance, specifically in the container stevedoring operationscontext. Hierarchical regression analysis revealed that safety concern, safetymotivation, and supervisors' safety management are positively related to safetyperformance. The results also indicate that the relationships between safetyconcern, safety motivation and safety performance are significantly mediatedby supervisors' safety management. Theoretical and practical implications ofthe findings for safety performance improvement in the container stevedoringoperations context are discussed.
