  Background & Objectives : Leadership power and management are discussed as sensitive and key elements in the safety issue. A safety leader can provide the necessary incentives for hard work, efficiency, and more productivity in the organization which includes various working groups and also strengthening a sense of individual responsibility to promote the safety performance in order to achieve the organizational goals. This study aimed to determine the validity and reliability of the Safety Leadership Questionnaire in the vehicle manufacturing industry.

  Methods : This cross-sectional study was conducted on 260 employees of Pars-Khodro Company in the manufacturing lines. All samples were selected randomly. The validity of the questionnaire was determined by statistical methods such as exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and the heterogeneity between questions. Also, the Cronbach's alpha was used in order to investigate the reliability of the questionnaire.

  Results: The results of exploratory factor analysis showed three factors including decision making, control, and incentives explained 66 percent of the total variance. Confirmatory factor analysis represented the appropriate fitness of information with a three-component structure (P<0.001, df = 2, 𝜒 2 = 5.36, CFI = 0.957, RMSEA = 0.089). The Cronbach's alpha coefficient was higher than 0.7 for all three factors.

  Conclusion : In this research, decision making was an important factor in measuring safety leadership. Moreover, the present study represented an indicator which could be used in the other surveys of safety and industrial psychology.
