Background: This paper describes the development of a scale for measuring safety climate. Methods: This study was conducted in six manufacturing companies in Iran. The scale developed through conducting a literature review about the safety climate and constructing a question pool. The number of items was reduced to 71 after performing a screening process. Results: The result of content validity analysis showed that fifty-nine items had excellent item content validity index (I-CVI ≥ 0.78) and content validity ratio (CVR > 0.38). The exploratory factor analysis (EFA) resulted in eight safety climate dimensions. The reliability value for the final 45 item scale was 0.96. The result of confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) showed that the safety climate model is satisfactory. Conclusion: This study produced a valid and reliable scale for measuring safety climate in manufacturing companies
