A workplace questionnaire study was conducted to determine workers' perceptions of workplace noise and the safety climate. The results show that a fatalistic attitude towards workplace safety has a high correlation with workers' perceived barriers to OHS preventive action with respect to noise and the perceived self-efficacy of that preventive action. Occupational health and safety training needs to ensure that there is a positive workplace safety climate in order to promote and support preventive action.
