Background and Aim: Ergonomics climate indicates employee perceptions of the extent to which the organization emphasizes and supports the design and modification of work, so that both performance and well-being of the personnel are improved. The purpose of this study was to determine the validity and reliability of the Persian version of the ergonomics climate assessment questionnaire in order to create a suitable tool for determining the overall values of an organization in connection with ergonomics and climate assessment.
Materials and Methods: First, the ergonomics climate assessment questionnaire was obtained from the Colorado State University of America, where it had been developed. The back-translation method was used to confirm its language suitability and precision. The content validity of the questionnaire was assessed by 10 relevant experts, followed by a cross-sectional study using a sample of 50 employees of a power generation plant using Cronbach's alpha to determine its reliability.
Results: The content validity ratio (CVR), content validity index (CVI) and reliability of thequestionnaire were found to be 0.90, 0.94 and 0.96 (a for the 59 items), respectively. These resultsindicating that the questionnaire is a valid and reliable tool.
Conclusion: Considering the acceptable validity and reliability of the ergonomic climate assessment questionnaire, it can be used as a valid and reliable tool to assess and analyze the status of ergonomic climate in different industries and organizations in Iran.
